OFI 1429: Following The Family Legacy And Going Your Own Way | Featured Freshman Episode | Tessa Camacho | Minarets High School FFA
Manage episode 333637908 series 2972642
Tessa Camacho is the very first "featured freshman" guest to come on the Off-Farm Income Podcast. And she came highly recommended by a previous guest, Mackenzie Camacho, who happens to be her older sister. You might remember MacKenzie from episode #1195 when she was an American Star Finalist, and when I was lucky enough to meet her in person at the National FFA Convention in 2021.
Tessa is part of long family legacy in the FFA. Both her parents were members and regional officers, and both of her older sisters are still involved in the FFA. Seeing that many blue jackets around the house, it was natural for Tessa to follow in those footsteps. In addition to all of that, she has been participating in the 4H for several years showing pigs, and it was a natural transition in the FFA. All of this time in the show arena has already paid dividends as well, as Tessa has been highly recognized for her showmanship skills with pigs.
