State Vice President, Central Northern Area
Hey, my name is Avyay Duggirala or Avi. This year I’ll be a senior at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (IMSA) in Aurora, IL. I joined FBLA my sophomore year and have competed in a variety of events at almost all levels. It has definitely been a defining experience of my high school experience.
FBLA has given me plenty of opportunities and has allowed myself to refine crucial skills including leadership, public speaking, and networking. The FBLA experience is one of a kind, from the competitive conferences to the different people you meet along the way. I hope as a state officer, I can help each member of our state achieve the same experience I have been so lucky to receive.
Apart from FBLA, I am captain of the congressional debate team, the president of poets’ society and Tri-M, and a writer/editor for our school science journal along with doing research. I also love all kinds of music, and I play the cello as well as electric guitar/bass in my band. I look forward to serving the Central Northern Area as the State Vice President. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding what I do, FBLA, or anything else you’re wondering
