Vice President of Community Relations Bio

Evia Rivera

Evia Rivera is currently a third-year student pursuing a Dual Baccalaureate in Psychology and Criminal Justice with the Honors College of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Evia’s DECA journey began in her freshman year of high school. At first, she was not too involved and enthusiastic about DECA. But as she has devoted more time to DECA, she learns that the efforts considerably pay off based on hard work and engagement. Since then, Evia has gained priceless memories, friendships, and tremendous professional development since the Fall of 2017. Evia enjoys the wide variety of categories to learn from. Ultimately, she gained friendships with a network of people from various, different categories and backgrounds all over the world. If asked, Evia would advocate that the networking from international conferences is a wonderful opportunity she feels everyone should take, especially as it is only one of the many benefits DECA offers.

Thus, as UNLV Collegiate DECA’s VP of Community Relations, Evia hopes to share the joy of DECA amongst fellow students and the community and continue to cultivate thriving relationships, as well as create new ones.
