EE: What do you plan to do after high school?

EE: What is it like being in DECA?
CL: It gives you an edge in the real world. You learn social skills that you need to know in business and it helps a ton.
EE: What got you interested in DECA originally?
CL: Some friends of mine did it last year, but I’ve developed my own reasons for liking it since then.
EE: What team are you on for cross country?
EE: What is it like balancing DECA and cross country?
CL: Sometimes DECA gets in the way of practice and meets but when you do two things you have to learn to balance them. I have it down.
EE: When did you start doing cross country?
CL: I started doing it in middle school and it carried on into high school, but I wasn’t interested until high school.
CL: I didn’t really connect with the team and it just seemed like a way to stay fit. Since coming to high school it has become more of a passion.
EE: What are you doing for the DECA competition on Nov. 11?
CL: I am doing Principle of Marketing. You walk and are given a piece of paper telling you what business you are in and you have to role play it. You then get ten minutes to prepare and you go into an interview with a professional.
EE: What kind of business would you like to market?
CL: I’d probably like to go for Target or some big corporation. It would be cool to have such a big influence and have so many people see your stuff.
