“When I first joined [4-H], I was a shy kid who did not talk to anyone. Eleven years later, and I am comfortable speaking in front of groups of people…a place I never thought I would be…4-H took a 7-year-old girl who didn’t talk and has turned me into a strong and independent woman.”
-Senior 4-H Member
