2019 National Competitor - Public Speaking
2018 National Competitor - American Enterprise Project
I joined FBLA when my teacher asked me if I would like to compete in a speaking competition. When deciding on one, I choose Introduction to Public Speaking. The competition pushed me to dive deeper into the FBLA goals, while interpreting what they meant to me. This led me to an increased desire to learn how I could give back to an organization that does a tremendous amount for the benefit of its members.
My favorite FBLA moment would be when I was finishing up my Public Speaking competition at State Leadership Conference and two girls came up to me and asked if I had an HDMI cord. I told them that I did not however I made it my personal mission to find them one. After getting them one, later that night they went on to place on stage. It felt personal knowing I was able to contribute to the success of other members.
