When I first joined TSA, I never imagined the places it would take me and the lessons I would learn. From competing in Prepared Speech at the national TSA conference as an introverted seventh grader, to this past year planning the first-ever virtual national TSA conference as a national TSA officer, I have cherished every moment in TSA and found the leader and voice within me. Now, as I embark on my sixth and final year in TSA, I have the honor to serve as your national TSA president.

Since middle school, I have competed in mainly speaking events such as Chapter Team and Prepared Presentation. Because of these experiences, I have discovered my passion for public speaking, and I plan to pursue a career in law and public service. Outside of TSA, I am a varsity tennis player, founder of an educational nonprofit, KidReach, president of my school's mental health club, student of the International Baccalaureate Program, and member of several honor societies.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to represent all 250,000 members as the national TSA president. TSA has given me the chance and environment to grow into the person I am today, and I hope to help our members do the same. See y'all in Dallas, Texas next summer at the 2022 national TSA conference!

My TSA journey began when I was only six months old. My mom is a TSA chapter advisor, and I have been traveling to national TSA conferences with her since I was little. Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to be a TSA member. I enjoyed going on trips, watching dragsters race, and seeing the cool projects everyone was doing. TSA has always remained a constant in my life. I decided to run for a state leadership position as a seventh-grader. Since then, I have served as a state second vice president, vice president, and president, as well as your national TSA sergeant-at-arms last year. This year, I am honored to serve as the 2021-2022 national TSA vice president. My favorite TSA competitive event is Biotechnology Design, because finding solutions to issues our world is facing today is something that is very important to me. Competing in Biotechnology Design helped me develop my interest in the medical field and identify my future career path. 

I have always enjoyed staying busy and participating in various activities. Outside of TSA, I am a competitive dancer, a dance teacher, a National Honor Society member, a certified nursing assistant, a student member of my school's CTE advisory board, and student council treasurer. I am also an active member of my church's youth group. 

I strive to learn something new every day and serve others as much as I can. TSA has allowed me to build lifelong connections and has provided me with so many amazing opportunities. Although I do not know exactly where my future will take me, I am so excited about what lies ahead.

Since I joined TSA in sixth grade, it has been my favorite school activity. Creating opportunities to experiment with future careers, TSA provides a place to learn about the real world. It has taught me critical life skills like adaptability and initiative. For that, I will always be grateful. I am honored to be representing this organization this year as the national TSA secretary. 

Outside of TSA, I am a music enthusiast who is a flute squad leader in my school's marching band and dance captain in the show choir. I am very involved at my school and hold leadership positions in the National Honor Society, Key Club, and student council. TSA has developed my interest for public speaking, which I use in speech and debate, and also in mock trial. In addition to school activities, I like staying civically engaged in my state.

My experiences serving as a state officer (sergeant-at-arms and secretary) and competing and placing in events at the state and national level have helped shape the person I am today. My favorite events are Prepared Presentation and Children's Stories. TSA helped me to develop the courage to speak in front of crowds at conferences and showed me how being a part of an open-minded team can help accomplish goals. TSA has changed my life, and this organization will forever hold a special place in my heart. I am excited to see what this year has in store!

South Western High School
Hanover, Pennsylvania

As a STEM-focused seventh grader, I joined TSA, unaware of its potential impact on my life. Never before had I been allowed to explore technology-related topics beyond a classroom setting and compete against students from across the nation. Recognizing my passion for this organization, my advisor encouraged me to step up into a leadership position. Now, six years later, I have the honor to serve 250,000 plus members this year as our national TSA treasurer.

Over the years, I have competed in events ranging from Chapter Team, where I found an unexpected interest in parliamentary procedure, to Engineering Design. Outside of TSA, I have integrated my passion for engineering and appreciation for my community, as an Eagle Scout, student council representative, and home renovating volunteer in the heart of my hometown.

My favorite TSA experiences have undoubtedly been meeting members from all across the nation. Having now been gifted the opportunity to serve in this position, I look forward to representing you as we navigate the 2021-2022 school year together.

When I joined TSA, I thought I would just learn robotics, coding, and engineering. However, after years of competitive events and leadership positions, TSA has helped me to identify and pursue my interests in areas that combine technology and art: graphic design and video editing. These experiences fueled my desire to run for national TSA reporter, and I am excited about the opportunity to serve as a national TSA officer this year.  Just three years ago, in my first year of TSA, I would have never guessed how important and helpful TSA could be for my life and aspirations.

I have competed in numerous TSA competitive events through the years, but Promotional Design and Engineering Design are definitely my favorite. These events helped me understand how to communicate visually, work with a team, and solve real-world problems.

Outside of TSA, I like to play tennis, skateboard, and hang out with friends. I serve as president of my school's FBLA chapter, and I spend a lot of my time doing graphic or logo design for others or myself. In the future, I hope to expand my knowledge and career opportunities in mechanical engineering and digital media design. I am confident that TSA has given me so many valuable skills that will help me in my future education and beyond. It is an honor to serve as your national TSA reporter this year!

The memories and experiences I have gained since my sixth grade year in TSA will stay with me forever. My fellow chapter members, and advisor, have constantly inspired me to challenge myself and grow as a leader and learner. Serving as the national TSA sergeant-at-arms is an honor, and I am excited to have the opportunity to represent a membership of such talented individuals.

As a TSA member, I compete in Biotechnology Design, Engineering Design, Technology Bowl, and Chapter Team. I enjoy competing in events that allow me to work with a team to develop solutions to problems and scenarios. When I am not participating in TSA, I enjoy hiking and spending time with my family. One of my favorite hobbies is 3D printing. I have always enjoyed learning about new technology, and 3D printing allows me to create everyday objects, which also serves as a useful tool in creating models for TSA events. 

TSA has also allowed me to explore my interest in business and technology, and helped to inspire my career aspirations. I will be forever grateful for how this organization has shaped me into the person I am today. I hope to see you all at the upcoming national TSA conference. Best of luck with the 2021-2022 school year!
