Hi! My name is Cheyenne Jantz. I’m from the small Kansas town of Ulysses. I’ve lived here my whole life so this community is very much what I would call my home. I am heavily active in my local 4-H community. I have been the secretary for my club as well as for 4-H Council. I am currently serving as 4-H Council president in my county and have been for the past 2 years. I am also a 4-H ambassador for my county. 4-H has been a huge part of my life since I was 10 years old. It has helped me in ways I hadn’t even thought of. It introduced me to the livestock industry, cattle in particular, which is where I found my passion for animals and showing cattle. It also introduced me to photography. Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, I would call it a creative escape. In the future I’m not exactly sure what my plan is but I would love to pursue one or both of those passions. 4-H has also shaped me into the leader that I am today, it has helped me with communication skills and problem solving. Through my internship I am working at my local K-State Research and Extension Office. This is yet another opportunity 4-H has given me. I found out about this internship through my extension agent. I wanted the internship because I am very familiar with the people and operations of it, and I wanted to be more involved in my community, especially my 4-H community.
