Hello Illinois FBLA, my name is Darsh Gupta and I am a Junior attending Warren Township High School. I joined FBLA as a timid freshman but since joining this organization helped me find my place as an outgoing and active member of my community. I have served in leadership positions before being offered the opportunity to serve as a State Officer. In addition to FBLA, I’m involved in Math Team, Robotics, Spanish National Honor Society, and Cross Country. I plan on using the skills and lessons that I have learned from these diverse organizations to guide me in carrying out my duties as your State Parliamentarian. Having placed nationally in parliamentary procedure events every year since joining has given me the confidence and ability to accomplish my duties with utmost quality. I am prepared to Create, Lead, and Inspire along with our amazing FBLA members throughout this year!
