Hello, Illinois FBLA! I'm your State Reporter, Neha Arun.
Illinois FBLA has already had a great start this year, and I'm excited to help us reach even greater heights together. I have been a part of FBLA since Middle Level, and I am currently my local chapter's president. I really appreciate FBLA for all the opportunities it has given me in leadership and developing my career skills, and I hope to help all of you pursue your FBLA goals.
In addition to FBLA, I am the primary representative for the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) on the Governor's Cabinet Youth Commission and the ISBE Student Advisory Council Co-chair. I have served as Interact Club Vice President, Scholar Bowl Captain, National Honor Society Member, and Student Leadership Council Member. I have danced and played piano for 13 years, and I teach hip-hop. I am also first-chair oboe in the Southern Illinois Symphony Orchestra. In my free time, I like hanging out with my friends and listening to K-pop.
This year is going to be wonderful for Illinois FBLA, as we learn to create, lead, and inspire. I hope to display our ideas and showcase our members during my term in office. I wish you all the best for this year!
