Dear Illinois FBLA,
My name is Yash Sharma, and I am beyond honored to serve as your 2022-2023 Illinois State President. I am a senior at Warren Township High School which is located in the Northern Area. I am proud to be a second-year state officer and National Council member of this amazing organization. Outside of FBLA, I serve as the president of Gurnee's Youth Leadership Initiative and Lake County's Young Ambassadors Board as well an intern for Abbott Laboratories and Congressional Representative Brad Schneider. In my free time you can find me playing tennis or basketball with my friends, listening to music, or simply just sleeping. FBLA has given me a countless number of opportunities and a level of fulfillment which I want to provide every member of Illinois FBLA with. In this coming year, the officer team and I will ensure that every member will have access to become a Future Business Leader. I am looking forward to an amazing year with all of you members, Illinois FBLA.
