Josie Thompson: Transforming into a leader as 4-H ambassador

Hello, I am Josie Thompson. I am a member of the Willing Workers 4-H Club. I have been a member for 11 years. I joined 4-H in the second grade; it has enriched my life in countless ways. I encourage anyone to join, it’s surprising what all it can offer to you. 4-H has taught me leadership and communication skills, and a strong work ethic.

This year I am a 4-H ambassador. Even though the year has just begun, I am confident we will accomplish many things. This is the first year that Osage County will have an ambassadors group – originally we had a 4-H king and queen. In 2018, I was the Osage County 4-H Queen and I had such a blast. I experienced so much and met a lot of great people.

The ambassador program is for two years. Within the two years, you will meet many people and experience things that you will carry with you forever.

This summer at the fairs we were able to pass out ribbons, and we should all be thankful that we had the opportunity to still do that. The ambassadors are also planning to attend several leadership camps to help us grow and become a closer team.

This year as an ambassador and as a senior, I hope to learn more about what I truly want to do in the future, and I am confident that 4-H will help guide me in the directions of opportunities.

There is always something out there to help spark your fire, and that’s why I encourage you to join 4-H. It’s not too late!

4-H Week: Oct. 4-10, 2020
