2018-19 Florida TSA State Officers
President - Christina Cunningham
Christina Cunningham is a Junior in the Theatre Department at Lakeland Sr. High School. She has five years of TSA experience, attending 10 conferences both at the State and National level. But beyond her competitive achievements, Christina recognizes her people-oriented connections as the most valuable outcome of her TSA endeavors. These connections inspired her to pursue her dream of serving as FL TSA President. Her goal-oriented personality helps her create effective teams and organize activities. Christina's can-do attitude is cultivated by TSA’s many team projects. Throughout her many conferences, she has competed in many events but Debating Technological Issues, Children's Stories, and STEM Careers are her favorite events. She encourages others to join TSA and be a part of the community that she loves. Aside from TSA, she is an active member of her Thespian Troupe, French Club, and NHS. Having been involved in 18 productions, she loves the stage, and everything involved in the production process. She loves to challenge herself and pursue the arts while still seeking rigorous coursework. She often paints and sculpts, as well as digitally designs art. She is passionate about TSA and looks forward to working on behalf of the Florida TSA Delegation!
Vice President - Luke Haas
Luke Haas is a stand-up guy from the Osceola County School for the Arts. He is currently a senior and has been involved in TSA since 7th grade when he was introduced to the world of technology through this extraordinary organization. Though Luke claims he is the most incredible dancer there is, the state sergeant at arms is far better. In all seriousness, Luke has put forth countless hours towards TSA and continues to devote much of his time and passion towards bettering this organization for generations to come. As the 2018-2019 Florida state vice-president, he hopes to implement chapter guidance programs, aiding chapters in endeavors from expanding membership to fundraising. He also strives to enhance the running of the membership committee and help make the greatest leadership and state conferences on record.
Secretary - Mica Chua
After building her own chapter from the ground up at Heritage High School as a freshman, Mica is excited to test her leadership skills as the Florida TSA 2018-2019 State Secretary. With her growing passion in public speaking, she frequently helps to expand our delegation with her constant recruitment. Aside from TSA, she takes officer positions in SGA, NHS, Model Student Senate, and her Class of 2021. She shows her love for serving the community through her 200 hours of mentorship to the Southwest Middle School chapter. As a dual enrollment student at Eastern Florida State College and a Cambridge Diploma student at her high school, she actually plans to pursue a career in the law field and recently switched her major at the college from biomedical science to political science. Overall, Mica strives to contribute as much as possible to not only the State Officer team but the entire state delegation as well. She hopes to do this by utilizing google hangouts to communicate to local chapters and assist the other officers in completing all their goals and promises.

You can always find him giving presentations about TSA at school events or working to plan fundraisers and events for his local chapter. Kashyap enjoys the challenges thrown his way by being a part of this amazing organization and feels that it has truly made him a better leader, critical-thinker, and taught him the importance of teamwork. His favorite competitive events include Biotechnology Design, STEM Careers, and Technology Bowl. Aside from TSA, Kashyap loves to keep himself busy with a rigorous IB and AP course workload in school and engages himself after school as part of the school’s Academic Team, Vice President of Model United Nations, a member of the Junior Class Council and Mu Alpha Theta. Furthermore, outside of school, Kashyap has been an Indian Classical singer for 12 years, is a black belt in Taekwondo, and enjoys playing tennis. Kashyap aspires to go into the field of biochemistry and eventually become a neurosurgeon, currently participating in research to reach that goal. As your 2018-2019 State Treasurer, Kashyap hopes to truly redefine the financial structure of TSA and use all the skills he has gained from TSA to help boost local, state, and national (ACS) fundraisers and connect chapters through a common financial system. He is very enthusiastic to serve you all as part of Florida TSA!

Over the years, she has placed in several events at both state and national conferences. Throughout her 4 years in TSA, Sarah has competed in a total of 11 different events, each giving her new challenges to face. While all of these were unique to her, Sarah's favorites are Essays on Technology, Fashion Design, and Inventions and Innovations.
