Free trip to Chicago! As a young freshman, those were the words that drew Rohan Patel’s attention to the FBLA booth at the International Community School’s club fair. However, FBLA would be more than a gateway to winning awards in competition, it would be a spark that created a series of events, experiences, and memories, that allows him to serve as your West Central Region Vice President today.
As a senior, Rohan has won numerous awards at the regional and state level, ranging in events from Business Financial Plan to Graphic Design. Through such events, he has developed the leadership skills and knowledge to lead major events, such as charitable fundraisers for his chapter, and has raised nearly $1,200 over the past two years. After competing in events, listening to business professionals, and experiencing all that FBLA offers to its members, this organization has influenced Rohan to aspire to a career that combines his passion for business and his strong knowledge and interest in the sciences.
Not only has FBLA been the major source of his personal growth, but it will give him the opportunity to serve hundreds of members throughout the state; and, hopefully, spark the same series of events, experiences, and memories that will make FBLA an impactful organization on each and every one of them.
