DHAARNA MALIK

PRESIDENT

Hi there fellow Longhorns, it’s Dhaarna Malik! I’m a Senior Finance major and President for the 2021-2022 year and I’m excited to make my 4th year in Collegiate DECA a memorable experience for all our chapter members! I was also the previous VP of Media and enjoy artistic endeavors with web design and project creativity. Likewise, I love exploring art museums with my friends, discovering new restaurants in Austin and dancing in Downtown. Outside of DECA I’m involved in the BBA Women’s Council and enjoy learning about empowerment as a woman in business. I will make this year an immersive experience filled with the growth of business knowledge and lifelong connections. I’m elated to come back stronger than ever and travel with our team!

 

Deca has gifted me with a plethora of career opportunities, an increase in interpersonal skills and a rapid analytical mindset to tackle any case study problems! I’m looking forward to influencing our students in positive ways and flourishing their professional careers.

  HANK HAYES  

VP OF OPERATIONS

Hey guys, I’m Hank! I’m a sophomore finance major from El Paso, Texas. I’m also in Phi Chi Theta which is one of the business fraternities here on campus. On weekends you’ll find me out exploring Austin with friends or in Greg playing basketball. I’m really looking forward to DECA this year because the chapter is going to get to meet, work, and compete in person!

 

DECA really gave me an opportunity to explore different work fields and gave me experience working on case studies which has helped grow my critical thinking skills.
