Meet Ramkishore

Ramkishore (Ramki) Annachi is a four-year DECA member from North Carolina. After attending the International Career Development Conference his freshman year and recognizing the abundant professional development opportunities, Ramki ran for association office to make similar experiences accessible to more members throughout his state. After transferring schools, Ramki was highly involved in reestablishing the North Carolina School of Science and Math DECA chapter. Ramki has served as the Dixie Pines Region Vice President and State President for North Carolina DECA, where his teams led immense membership growth and implemented new chapter engagement programs. At ICDC, he achieved second and first place in VBC-Hotel Management in his sophomore and junior years. Ramki believes all members can utilize DECA’s opportunities to grow and seeks to make more members aware of these possibilities. Beyond DECA, Ramki enjoys tennis, conducts research on water filtration and is working towards his private pilot’s license.
