They say that fate doesnt care about your plans and I'm a firm believer that this is true because when I first attended San Tan Foothills High School I did not want to take a journalism class, but as fate would have it I found my greatest joy in life through taking the most unenjoyable class. In journalism I was introduced to the FBLA adviser at my school and he opened my eyes to an organization that has changed my life. From the moment that I took the action to join I sealed a fate of growth, development, learning, and memories. I have made countless connections and memories and within one year I transformed from a chapter officer to a state officer, from placing 1st in client service at Regionals to taking 10th in the nation. Nothing in this life is accidental and while journalism isn't my favorite subject, I will never regret the day I joined that class and my eyes were opened to FBLA. I joined FBLA with the intent of changing the lives of members but in reality FBLA has changed me and I would not take back any part of my FBLA journey. #fblapblweek

I cannot begin to say how thankful I am for FBLA and my state officer team! I am so thankful that we have come closer as a team and formed new bonds. I'm grateful for my tea buddies and the fact that I can talk about anything with the girls. Also, I'm grateful for all the jokes and good times from the boys. I even appreciate when Eric and Corbin are sassy lol love you all! (also threw in a pic of my hosa chapter bc i love them with my whole heart) #loveallCTSOs
NFLC was such an amazing experience and I got to meet so many new people! I am forever grateful for the opportunities offered through FBLA. Big thanks to my state officer team for making the trip so memorable and to the national officers for having a part in coordinating such an amazing conference!#nflc2017la (p.s. prepare for a spam of pics from the trip)
I've completely been slacking on updating my social media but heres a little blast of CTSO on Ice from last week on Thursday! I had such an amazing time getting to see members and I feel like we all learned a great deal from the workshops from various things such as advertising and marketing to great customer service and keeping your audience coming back to your business. Coupled with all my newfound knowledge I think I found my new favorite sport!! I ABSOLUTELY loved the hockey game and plan on going to another hockey game real soon
I had the most amazing end to my week yesterday! I made it through two amazing chapter visits, my health career display presentation for cavit, doing quiz retakes, and staying on top of my school work. I'm so thankful for my amazing and supportive chapter and all the people in my life who are always hyping me up and encouraging me
Training was super long and tested our endurance, but in the end our team grew and learned a lot about each other each other and we made strong bonds that are bound to last. In the end, I had the best time at training with my state officer team and wouldn't change a single thing. I look forward to the upcoming year and I'm super excited for nationals!
