AKAASH KRISHNAN – VP of Leadership

Akaash Krishnan, a senior at the Davidson Academy, is excited to serve as your Vice President of Leadership. He hopes to bridge the gap between state officers and chapter members by elevating the leader and encouraging DECA students to be the change that they seek.

Akaash joined DECA during his sophomore year. At SCDC 2018, he was astounded by the sheer magnitude and palpable energy of Nevada DECA. Determined to play a bigger role in DECA, he took on the role of his chapter’s VP of Operations, before deciding to run for state office. From being elected to VP of Leadership and becoming the state champion of HTDM, SCDC 2019 was nothing short of an exhilarating conference for Akaash. DECA has been a truly transformative experience for Akaash by giving him the chance to not only gain meaningful experience in the world of business, but also helping him pursue leadership opportunities to engage with his local community.

Outside of DECA, Akaash is a devoted member of his school’s Speech and Debate team, and supports younger students as a Peer Advising Liaison. You can also find him rock climbing at local gyms -- or climbing just about anything he can get his hands on -- and doing handstands. Feel free to challenge him to a handstand competition the next time you see him.

Whether it’s a question about DECA or a conversation about life, Akaash would love to talk! Feel free to contact him with any questions you may have.
