Career Goals: There are many things that I desire in life, but the biggest is a successful career in the field I am passionate about, and that is Agriculture, more specifically, pork production. Ever since I was a little kid, pondering crazy dreams of what I wanted to be when I grew up, Agricultural jobs always caught my attention more than anything.

Soon, I realized that NC State’s Ag Institute was the right college for me because they provide the courses and hands on training to get where I want to be. After graduating from the Ag institute, I want to pursue a career as a field man in the pork industry, hopefully for N.G. Purvis Farms and I would like to build a house and a small cattle farm of my own.
When I was younger, I worked for a local farmer in his poultry houses and helping him with his cows, I would walk the dead in the chicken houses, feed the chickens, take feed inventory, etc. this sparked my fire for pursuing a career in agriculture that I will make happen.

I want to pursue this career because of the background and work I have in it, if you love what you do then you never work a day in your life, I love this field and can tell it is for me.
