6 months into my National Rural Ambassador (RA) journey and it has been a fantastic time so far. I have been fortunate enough to attend shows, speak at events and meet many impressive future rural ambassadors.  I have gained a deeper understanding of the youth initiatives across the country as a member of the ASA Emerging Leaders Committee, and I look forward to giving back to the National RA program on the National RA Working Group. A highlight so far has been attending the EKKA in August and having the incredible opportunity to judge the Queensland Rural Ambassador Awards. It is exciting to see shows back on and the innovative ideas of committees across Australia.
