I would have never had the opportunity to research and explore my chosen field of study (Occupational Therapy) had it not been for FCCLA.  After completing the course Investigation Project as a mere freshman.  I fell in love with the occupation.  I will b attending The Ohio State University for a career that I love knowing that FCCLA and Family Consumer Science has prepared me for the next chapter of my life.  My appreciation for FCCLA continued to grow and I cannot thank everyone involved in the organization through for setting me on a path that allows me to not only continue to grow as an individual but to continue to make a difference in my community as well.
