David is a senior from Foothill High School and is beyond grateful to have been selected to serve as your 2017-2018 California State President.
Like many others, David joined DECA as a shy freshman who didn’t know the first thing about business. However, thanks to the selfless mentorship of a few upperclassmen, DECA quickly became an integral part of David’s life. Through his three years in DECA, David has experienced his fair share of successes and challenges. He is a former ICDC competitor, where he finished first place two consecutive times in BLDTM.
Outside of competition, David serves on Foothill DECA’s officer team as the Vice President of Chapter Management. His favorite memories include organizing annual talent shows to raise funds for MDA, planning and speaking at local mini conferences, and watching his fellow members make it on stage at competition.
Aside from DECA, David is an avid reader, constantly finding himself lost in books on dystopian futures and historical accounts. He also enjoys playing the violin as both a soloist and a member of the El Camino Youth Symphony. In the future, he plans to attend a four-year college in a business-related major, meet President Obama, compose his own symphony, and write a children’s book.
