National FFA Convention: My Experience

Today, October 25, 2017, was the kickoff for the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. I was given the privilege to be chosen to go along with twelve other chapter members, and I have been forever grateful. Luckily, I got to be able to photograph parts of the Opening Session, which was a kickoff event with about 60,000 FFA members from all over the United States, and the Virgin Islands. This day has been a wonderful experience, and I have two more days to go until it ends on Friday, October 28.
