I am still in awe over being elected as your Florida DECA vice president. It’s amazing to think of the journey that led me to this moment, where I am living my dream, representing Florida DECA. Since Freshmen year I fell in love with this organization. It brought me so much joy and so many wonderful friends. I’m really excited for this year because I get to meet you guys and work with you all to make our DECA experience even better! It’s also going to be my first time going to ICDC!
You already know me as Florida DECA Vice President, but I also want you to get to know me as Marina. I’m a huge Real Madrid fan, and I play tennis and soccer on my school varsity teams. Outside of sports, here are a few of the things that I like. My favorite movie is X-men First Class, ever since it came out in 11’. I especially love sitcoms like The Mindy Project, and I Love Lucy. Not to mention, Parks and Rec has a special place in my heart. Also, I’m Colombian and Puerto Rican, and my family means the world to me.
Over the course of this year, I expect great things from Team 59. We are all so grateful to represent and serve our members. It’s going to be unforgettable year, and I’m so glad I get to be apart of it. I can’t wait to see you all at our future conferences!
