Vihaan Jain – VP of Career Development

Vihaan Jain, a senior in the Biomedical Sciences program at West Career and Technical Academy, is honored to serve as your 2020-2021 Vice President of Career Development! Vihaan’s aim is to allow every DECA member to grow into the best competitors that they can be at SCDC and ICDC by providing them with specialized resources and maintaining open communication throughout the year.

Vihaan first became a member of DECA in his freshman year and was instantly captivated by the opportunities and learning experiences that came from DECA’s competitive events program. His passion for success in competition allowed him to win first place at SCDC three years in a row; once for Principles of Business Management and Administration and twice for Human Resources Management. He then went on to become an international finalist for HRM at ICDC 2019.

With his experience in competition, Vihaan wanted to help support his local chapter so he became the Competition Preparation Officer. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience of meeting new people within his chapter and helping them perform at their best at SCDC, which motivated him to become a state officer for Nevada DECA.

Outside of DECA, Vihaan is a member of his school’s HOSA chapter, Speech and Debate team, and Science Olympiad team. He also regularly volunteers for his local hospital and is a member of Ekal Vidyalaya, a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding educational opportunities across India.

In the future, Vihaan dreams to combine his passions for business management and medicine by establishing his own medical practice and allowing it to expand over time. He also dreams to travel the world, meet people from different cultures, and visit a variety of famous landmarks.

This year, Vihaan is excited to work with Nevada DECA members for competition and can’t wait to make it a truly memorable year!
