Josie Welder, from Wahpeton, ND, is a freshman attending North Dakota State College of Science. She is pursuing a Business Management degree in Marketing, Sales, and Hospitality. She has been involved with DECA for four years, where she served as Vice President and President in high school. She currently is serving as Vice President of Communications. Her favorite hobbies include traveling around the world. Her favorite place she has been to is Roatan, Honduras. Another favorite hobby is hammocking with friends and making all types of different coffees. She recently got a job at Dakota Coffee Company. She also works as a server at City Brew Hall, a local restaurant.
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.

Q’ Essence Walker is currently the Marketing Consultant for Gooch Consulting & Event Services having 15 years of event planning experience under our family-owned business. Previously, she worked for several non-profit organizations, including the Girls Scouts of Greater Mississippi as their Membership and Community Development Specialist and Susan G. Komen Memphis-MidSouth as their Event Planner. Q’ Essence has a passion for animals, children, and food. "I have six children that keep me healthy and vibrant. Getting to see those warm, fuzzy faces and wagging tails (except the guinea pig) every morning is the highlight of my day!"

After earning an undergraduate degree in Communications: Public Relations with a minor in Marketing, she always aspired to go back. In 2019 she followed her dreams and went back to school to pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Mississippi State University - Meridian. Shortly after being in the program, she was given the opportunity to join DECA. At the time, she didn't have any real interest in joining any extracurriculars, but it has become one of the best decisions. DECA has allowed her to develop leadership skills, put into practice what she has learned, and network with like-minded individuals all over the world. DECA has improved her college experience by allowing her to have closer relationships with the other students she usually would not have met. In addition, she is the Vice-President of her university's collegiate DECA chapter and even won 1st place in her category at last year's state development conference. Overall, it has been an enjoyable experience, and she knows she will continue to use the skills and values she has learned in her endeavors.
