Although the DECA Leadership Conference, held on Monday October 26, was early in the academic year, the early timing didn’t hold back the eager high school DECA students. With business hopes and dreams, the students came loaded with questions looking for advice and any knowledge they could attain.
A DECA leader and national champion myself, I remember the fall being an overwhelming time of year, applying to colleges and putting time into the DECA competitions. Representing the Foster School our team gave students relatable guidance as many of us were in their shoes only a few years ago. Without a huge difference in age we were able to help build their confidence at a stressful time of the year and talk to them about the Foster School of Business. It was nice to be able to give them the advice I wish I had received. I am very thankful for the experiences I had being part of DECA and hope to see them on campus in the near future!
