Hello Tennessee TSA! My name is Lena Feleke, and I am truly honored and excited to serve as your 2023-2024 State Reporter. Currently, I am a junior at Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet High School in Nashville, Tennessee.
In 6th grade, I was hesitant about joining TSA, but I ended up joining without expecting much. Today, however, I am happy I joined, as TSA gave me a supportive family that would encourage me to strive in both leadership and technology. It has equipped me with important professional skills that have allowed me to thrive and become an active and participatory person in various settings. I learned from not only the competitive events TSA offered but also from the experiences and interactions I encountered due to it. My favorite TSA event is Data Science and Analytics, as it has allowed me to combine my interests in technology and healthcare. After being on the Membership Committee, I wanted to do more to give back to TSA, which is why I ran for office.
Outside of TSA, you can find me participating in clubs like Science Olympiad and HOSA, volunteering in my community, or learning new things!
This year, my main goals for Tennessee TSA include allowing more voices to be heard and enabling chapters to become more aware of the other chapters present in our state delegation. These goals will improve membership by allowing for more concerns to be addressed and allowing for more communication between chapters, respectively. I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to work with Team 46 to improve our state delegation for the better!
