Diaz, a graduating senior, has achieved a myriad of accomplishments
during her 11 years in the Miami-Dade 4-H Youth program. Most
recently, she was elected State Vice President for 2010-2011 and was
one of only four 4-H members statewide to be chosen to attend the 4-H
National Conference in Washington, D.C. The Miami-Dade 4-H program is
proud of Rebekah and encourages others to follow in her footsteps to
develop the skills they will need to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Her nerves got the best of her and she wound up crying. Now, that same nervous girl has blossomed into a confident public speaker, receiving perfect scores at district events and winning two first-place trophies at state competitions. Joining 4-H has afforded Rebekah many opportunities to learn life skills and get involved in the community.
