How I Got Here
During October of my senior year at Upper Merion Area High School in King of Prussia, PA, I was looking for a job. I went to my business teacher about an ad she mentioned about a part-time position filing papers at a local investment firm. She asked me about my qualifications so she could inform the company. As a student also at Central Montco Technical High School in Plymouth Meeting PA, I was a part of the half-day Culinary Arts program. There, I was a part of an organization called SkillsUSA. SkillsUSA is a student leadership and skills organization for career and technical education. I told her all about my experiences - climbing the ranks as a school-wide officer to state treasurer to my current position as the National SkillsUSA Region 1 Vice President (June 2013 – June 2014). I was one of 15 young individuals elected by my peers to represent the over 350,000 members of SkillsUSA across the US and its territories.
