Another favorite hobby is hammocking with friends and making all types of different coffees. She recently got a job at Dakota Coffee Company.

Welder is excited about competing in the state conference in March. She is also hoping ICDC will be in person next year. Her passion for DECA also comes with a desire to serve others, and she is preparing for the upcoming blood drive at her school in March. DECA has allowed her to become a better individual while networking with like-minded individuals across the state and maybe someday the nation. Overall, DECA has been a fantastic experience. She is hoping to create more DECA memories in the future.
