What is your favorite DECA memory?

  • My favorite DECA memory so far has been ICDC 2022. I went to the Elevate Leadership Conference, and that is where I found my spark and passion to become more involved and help others. I loved getting to know people from all over the world and hearing what they have been able to accomplish through DECA. I also loved how close I became with my chapter at ICDC since we all did everything together and learned from one another.

What are three words to describe you:

  • My friends describe me as compassionate, determined, and organized.

Why did you join DECA?

  • My mom was the reason I joined DECA. She was a chapter officer at the same school that I go to, Edmond North, and thought that I would enjoy the organization and that it would be beneficial to my future, and she wasn’t wrong. Over the three years that I have been a member, I have become more involved and been able to take advantage of all of the amazing opportunities that DECA provides to their members.

What are your future career goals?

  • In college, I plan to major in business management and receive a minor in Spanish. After college, my career goal is manage restaurants for 5 to 10 years to get hands-on experience in running a business. Then I want to have my own restaurant that I will be able to run from previous knowledge and experiences.

Duties: It shall be the duty of the elected Vice President of Career Development to practice the “Careers” element of the DECA Mission, including chapter participation preparation and performance in Competitive Events; and to be available, as necessary, in promoting the general welfare of DECA.
