Bayli Williams knows exactly what she wants in life. The 17-year-old daughter of Monty and Deana Williams said she wants to do something with her life that will allow her to help others. The Lingleville High School junior plans to attend Texas Tech University in Lubbock after graduation and will get her undergrad in something in the medical field.
Williams is involved in 4-H and FFA and enjoys showing animals in every major show in the state. While heifers are her main focus, Williams also shows pigs and is the reporter for the Stephenville 4-H Club. But she also represents the area as a Texas 4-H Livestock Ambassador.
1. What is your best high school memory?
As an Ambassador I got to help a kid show a mini-Hereford during the show in McKinney and we won the mini-Hereford show. It was so much fun and the look on the kid's face was priceless.
2. What advice would you give to incoming freshman?
I would tell freshman to stay focused on their grades because it gets hard and grades really do matter.
3. Who is your biggest influence?
Probably my dad because I really look up to him and everything he's about. He was the first one to ever win all four major stock shows with the same heifer in the same year and now I'm trying to do the same. Plus he teaches me a lot of stuff, not only about showing, but everything.
4. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years I'll be 27, so hopefully married. I want to live somewhere in West Texas, around the Anson-Snyder area where some of my family lives. My plan is to be raising show cattle and having people show for me.
5. How do you impact the world around you?
Through Ambassadors I come into contact with a lot of younger kids who look up to us. I really enjoy getting to meet them and show them what I've learned about animals and showing. I think that probably is a big impact. I try to always teach them to be positive and be that good role model.
