I competed in Future BusinessLeader at Nationals in Orlando.I was extremely proud ofmyself, making it to finals as asophomore.
At the 2012 State LeadershipConference I was elected StatePresident by my peers. By beingsworn in I accepted the dutiesand responsibilities of an officer,promising to carry them out tothe best of my ability.
At this summit I networked withfellow FBLA members andalumni. I also learned the skillsnecessary to guide my chapterin the following year.
At this conference I servedas Region 11 President,presiding over the entireconference. I competed,held a workshop, andfacilitated the awardsceremony.
I earned the Georgia StateSuperintendent’s ExcellenceAward for my outstandingleadership ability throughFBLA. This was a lengthyprocess from my seven years asa member, but mainlyculminated from leading theover 20,000 members ofGeorgia FBLA.
Future Business Leaders of America isn’t a club to me. FBLA is the organization that changed my life. Everything I’ve learned about being a leader can somehow connect towards FBLA. FBLA has taught me exactly what it takes to be a leader, and a good one at that. Through conferences, competitions, and my chapter confidence has been instilled in me in everything I do. I have created a family in FBLA; members will be there for you in any walk of life. I am proud of everything I’ve done through this organization, and will continue to be proud of everything FBLA helps me accomplish. I have grown up in this organization and it has helped me grow along the correct path. Without FBLA, I would be half of the leader I am today. It has shaped my leadership style completely.
