  TIME PACES EVERYTHING IN LIFE

Everyone is given a countdown the day they are born. External factors determine the length of the countdown, and it can’t be controlled. National FFA Central Region Vice President Alicia Hodnik says to always count up, not down.

She shows how important it is to live in the moment, and make time stand still. One minute can seem so meaningless, yet putting all these minutes together make up life. One single second can change everything. That’s all it takes to change one person’s life.

Born in California, Hodnik moved to Wisconsin right before her freshman year. With her school mentor being the FFA president, she was convinced to come to one event, fun night. While playing dodge ball, she was hit in the face. The man who hit her introduced himself as the agriculture science teacher. He convinced her to join an agriculture class with one sentence. “It only takes one impact to get involved, there was your impact.”

There is no way to tell how much time is left. Sometimes people live somewhere other than the moment, which is what makes time stand still. “My biggest fear is not enough time,” Hodnik says.

Hodnik wants all of the members to take in to consideration what she has to say. “I love the Texas FFA members!” she exclaims. She says that she is the normal FFA member, just like everyone else; the only difference is that they stitched something else on her jacket.
