LET’S GET STARTED

“I am 22 years old, the third of eight kids, and I grew up on my Dads farm in Ohio. I was three when my mom started to homeschool. By the age of 12, I was working a full–time job as well as working 40–50 hours on my dad’s farm. At age 17, I took a summer job in WA state working for a custom harvesting Co. I worked there for three summers in a row and ended up moving to WA. I want to be able to get away from farm life! I now know without a shadow of a doubt that I need a higher education than 6th grade."

– Nathan, Ohio
