I am currently the VP for Chapter Development and I have the opportunity to assist in the planning of the weekly training sessions to help bring out your inner DECA champion. I’m definitely looking forward to a year of fun and many medals!

My name is Chongo Bwalya. I'm currently a third year student studying a Bachelor of Commerce: Accounting & Finance. I chose accounting because I'm one of those crazy people who actually loves math. Anyone who knows me knows that my number one passions are music, pop culture, and personal fitness (and I talk way too much about each of these). This year, I will be DECA's VP Finance. My job is to take care of DECA's finances. I am super friendly, so if you're ever looking to have a meaningful conversation about the history behind cash flows (or Kanye West), just holla!

I am a second year student studying commerce with a concentration in entrepreneurship. I am from Caledon, a small farming town just north of Toronto. I chose Carleton University because of the community atmosphere and co-op opportunities available in Ottawa. Being a part of Carleton DECA has allowed me to develop the skills necessary for advancement in the business world and, most importantly, it has allowed me to network with fellow students and business professionals. Aside from DECA, I enjoy traveling, hiking, dancing, photography -  pretty much anything adventurous! I plan to fulfill my role as VP of Marketing by spreading the word, running Carleton DECA campaigns, and keeping delegates engaged and updated. I look forward to being apart of the DECA executive team and engaging in activities with this year's chapter!
