Hello TNTSA! My name is Yug Patel, and I am a Sophomore this year at Ravenwood High School. I'm both honored and excited to serve as your Sergeant-at-Arms this year!
I first joined TSA in the 8th grade not expecting much, but my opinions quickly changed. Going through the year, experiencing my first regional, state, and national conferences sparked my love for TSA and changed my entire middle school experience. I was able to grow as a student, teammate, and leader. The experiences and friendships I gained through TSA will forever stay with me. They also allowed me to thrive in other extracurriculars in high school and led me to create a chapter at Ravenwood. My favorite event so far in TSA has to be Biotech! Outside of TSA, I play Soccer, run cross country, and participate in clubs like Debate, HOSA, and YIG!
My main goals this year for TSA are to connect chapters and make TSA a more accessible experience to everyone who wants to compete! I am beyond enthusiastic to work with Team 45 and all of TNTSA's members this year!
