I joined DECA after I was invited by some older friends of mine. Little did I know that attending that first DECA meeting would lead to a host of new experiences and skills. My participation in DECA has fast-tracked my professional development and leadership, which I will be forever thankful for. Further, I have been able to meet so many amazing people through DECA. I can’t stress enough how amazing my time in the organization has been and I will forever recommend DECA to everyone.
