Valeria Torres

Valeria Torres is proud to represent her senior year as your 2016 ­ 2017 Nevada DECA Secretary! As a student from Southwest Career and Technical Academy, she is ready to dedicate her time and energy to the organization that she has learned to value since her sophomore year. DECA has influenced her to expand her passion and ideas, and to motivate other members of Nevada DECA to do the same.

This will be the third year that she continuously looks for opportunities that can show her devotion as a member, and she looks forward to serving her term as a state officer. She had the privilege to represent her chapter as the Community Service Committee Leader during her junior year, and has participated and organized various events that have had DECA members give back to the community.

Besides dedicating much of her time to DECA, she is a focused student who loves to write! On her own time, she enjoys volunteering with friends to make her high school experience the most memorable possible. Because her love and desire for the organization will continue beyond high school, she strives to earn a master’s degree in marketing to become a successful Entrepreneur.

Someone who encouraged her journey as a DECA member once told her the well­known quote by Napoleon Hill: “What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” She is ready to show her state’s members that DECA will drive a passion for business beyond their limits!
