Best mentor: My uncle, Hermann, was a great mentor to me. He taught me a lot about work ethic, compassion, and doing things for others. Starting from five years old, I spent a lot of time with him on the farm, at work, and volunteering with him for many of the organizations he was involved in.
Someone I admire: My Omi, Anneliese, she emigrated from Germany in 1954 with nothing and settled on a farm in rural Minnesota with my Grandpa. They started a farm and family together. Her story is one of determination and hard work.
