An Introduction by our new Youth Director:
Hello all youth members.
I have been chosen to be the youth director, and would like to introduce myself to those of
you who may not know me. My name is Bryant Miller and I am from northwestern Ohio. I
began raising rabbits when I was roughly 5 years old with black New Zealands. In the
summer of 2007, I decided to begin raising Havanas, largely because they were similar to
New Zealands, but in a smaller package, easier for showmanship. I have actively exhibited
Havanas since that point. In 2011, Miranda Tolsma and I began exhibiting together.
Currently we focus on blacks, brokers and blues, and have a few chocolate popouts. We
attend multiple shows throughout Michigan, Ohio, And Indiana, and typically travel to
convention and nationals.
Being the youth director, I would like to get to know... youth members I already don't know.
If you,as a youth member,encounter any type of problem that you would like to share with
me, I am more than happy to listen, and perhaps help. I was chosen to voice the youth's
opinion on certain topics, and I Need you to communicate with me, sharing your ideas to
help better the club, and/or solve any problems that you may have.
Feel free to Facebook me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or talk to me in person!
I would also like to have a few youth from around the country ( particularly 2 from the west
coast, 2 from the south, 1 from the northern Midwest, and 2 from the east coast.) to help me
with certain situations that may occur in the future. If something occurs, I'd like to have a few
people that can represent their area of the country in opinions on certain situations that may
occur. If YOU would like to help me in this, please email me with your name, and where you
are from! As I said before, I would like to have 2 youth from the west coast, 2 from the
south,1 more from the Midwest, and 2 from the east coast. Again my email is
Feel free to contact you about any concerns/comments you may have.
