My plans for the future include a position in a national non-profit, owning and running my own non-profit and possibly a government office position. Through FCCLA I have uncovered the true meaning of life which I believe is to serve others. Due to that philosophy, FCCLA has helped me choose a career path that is full of service learning opportunities.
