Jaquay Butler, FARMS Program Alumni

Jaquay Butler


Alumnus, 2009-2010, Sonoma State University (current), one year studying in Jaen, Spain

FARMS Leadership helped me develop a different way of looking at the world. As a teenager you sometimes (all the time, really), think that you know everything. FARMS showed me that reality I didn't know much about things like life and the environment and changed the way I "saw" things.

It also gave me the mentorship I needed to not only finish the program but to continue on into other programs like GreenCorps. If it wasn't for programs like FARMS, not only would I not be where I am today (SPAIN) but I wouldn't be who I am today!

"I had an amazing time in FARMS, and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to be a part of the program."
