When asked about her appointment, Ava shared her excitement, saying:

"I ran for VP because I want to inspire others. I want to encourage everyone to go after their dreams, whether it is or isn’t in DECA. The running process was a great experience because you go through real-world situations. I ran twice these past two years but needed more practice when it came down to certain things. I learned a lot about myself during the process as well. I was introduced to DECA and marketing/business as a whole around my 8th-grade year, and now, thinking back, I genuinely would not have been the person I am today without DECA and that marketing class. I’m happy to be on this amazing team and cannot wait for the upcoming year!"

Ava's appointment resonates with the values and mission of DECA, as it encourages students to develop essential business and leadership skills while fostering a sense of entrepreneurship and innovation. Her dedication to this cause is a testament to DECA’s transformative impact on young minds, preparing them to excel in the dynamic world of business. As Ava assumes her role as VP of Marketing, she reminds us of the immense potential within each of us.
