Dakota Belcher

Major: Agricultural Communications

Dream Job: I would love to work for a large agricultural company as an Ambassador or Public Relations specialist! After I gather many years of experience I hope to engage in politics to become a United States Secretary of Agriculture, NM Secretary of Agriculture, or even a United States Press Secretary. We’re talking about dreams here now!

Favorite NMSU Experience / What advice do you have for other students? My favorite NMSU experience was becoming a member of multiple clubs and organizations! I believe commitment to organizations strengthens your college experience more than just being a diligent student!

Who is your biggest role model? Of course my parents are my biggest role models in life, as they have totally shown me the ropes when it comes to hard work and due diligence! Now, my role model outside of my life is Steve Irwin. I remember as a kid watching his TV specials and learning from him through his passion. He is the embodiment of passion, and I have been inspired by him ever since!

What is your favorite quote? "Be passionate and Enthusiastic in the Direction you Pursue in Life.” -Steve Irwin

Favorite music artist: This is probably the toughest question for me, as I listen to music almost 24/7! But all things considered, it’s between Kacey Musgraves, Coldplay, or Paramore!

Favorite TV Show: My favorite TV show is Parks and Recreation. If you haven’t watched it, I strictly encourage it.

Favorite Snack: Definitely Takis, even though they’re super bad for me.

Favorite extracurricular activity: So far my favorite extracurricular activity has been the Farm Bureau Discussion Meet, through Collegiate Discussion Meet.

What would your superpower be? I’d definitely choose telepathy, which would be extremely handy in my career field.
