Hey! I’m Krista Temple, a freshman majoring in Agricultural Communications. I grew up on a family farm near Fulton, IL. I was involved in 4-H for 10 years and many other extra curricular activities in high school. Coming to the University of Illinois and living at 4-H House were the dreams of my 4-year-old self coming true. I have eight relatives that have lived at the house and now it’s finally my turn!
I had a fantastic first semester at the University of Illinois and here at 4-H House! I had opportunities to research many topics that were interesting and relevant to me. One of these research projects was working with a professor on GMO news articles in Ghana, which was very interesting.
I also started a blog at kdtemple.wordpress.com, which has been a great experience!
I love living at 4-H House and the wonderful friends it has provided me with. Having upperclassman to guide me in my first semester was a HUGE blessing!
This semester, I have the privilege of serving as Chaplain and Public Relations Chair (so I get to post these wonderful blogs and all the things you see on Facebook and Twitter.)
College has been a great adventure so far and I can’t wait to see what the next few years have in store!
