Behind every successful person, there was somebody who was pushing them or encouraging them, and today's interview is absolute proof of that.

Kami Holt is a National Proficiency Finalist this year in Ag Sales Entrepreneurship, but her journey didn't just start yesterday. Growing up on her family's century farm in Southern Utah, Kami has been exposed to agriculture her entire life. However, it was her older brother's membership in the FFA that sparked this interest and ultimately led her to join. However, joining was enough for Kami, and when she was asked if she was going to compete for a leadership role she said "no".

Kami's grandmother and brother would not take "no" for an answer and really pushed or, as Kami put it, "coerced" her into filling out the application to join the officer team. Ultimately she was selected, spend three years as an officer, and found that to be a very rewarding experience. During this time Kami took over her brother's SAE project, selling corn stalks and straw bales, and continued to grow the business.
