Thanks @DECAInc!!!

Standard

Hey guys,

As I sit here and reflect on what could quite possibly be my last ‪#‎CDECAICDC, I realize I have a lot to be proud of and thankful for.

First off, I was a member of the first social media team for the conference. I was a bit nervous about the position, but I’m glad I took the leap to say that I am DECA. It was a wonderful experience. It was something incredible to put on my resume that will help me in the future. It’s something that I truly thankful and proud of.

Second, I have made lot of friends. There are more than I can list. I have been able to make some lifeDECA Friendslong friends. I love my DECA family and I’m sure that we will all do amazing things in the future.

Third, even though I didn’t take home a medal, I was able to make industry connections I would have never made if I hadn’t gone to the conference. One of the judges for the travel and tourism event rekindled my desire to work for the cruise industry. I’m hoping to be on a ship this time next year.

Thank you DECA for everything. I’m the professional that I am because I participated. I can never repay the organization for all that it has given me

I’m Part of the #CDECAICDC Social Media Team!!!

Hey guys,

I got some super exciting news on Friday. I am 1 of 4 members of the Collegiate DECA International Career Development Conference’s first ever social media team. I still have very mixed feelings about the whole thing.

I’m having mixed feelings about the whole thing. I never thought that I would be chosen when I applied, but one thing that I pride myself on is taking advantage of every situation. I’m from not a well known city in Wisconsin that like no one has ever heard of.  As the current president of the Wisconsin Association Executive board told me on Facebook:

If by chance you’re in a situation causing you doubt in your abilities, don’t. DECA chose you to represent us for a reason. Knowing that, you can be fully confident in your amazing skills and talents as we are.

He’s right though. If DECA didn’t think I had what it took to do this job, they wouldn’t have given it to me. It’s funny though. People found out that I was on the team before I did via social media.

If by chance you would like to read the announcement, you can read it here.
