Senior Spotlight, Julie Clabots – Ashwaubenon Deca, National Honor Society

By Murray Gleffe


Name: Julie Clabots

Activity: DECA, National Honor Society

What is it like to be a leader for DECA at Ashwaubenon High School? “Being a leader for DECA is an honor and a pleasure. I’ve really enjoyed being part of this year’s great officer team and helping new members understand the somewhat confusing competition structure.”

What is your most embarrassing moment ever in DECA? “I haven’t ever been too embarrassed, thanks to having a partner who keeps the presentation going if I falter.”

How many years have you been involved in DECA? “I’ve been in DECA for the past four years.”

What is your most memorable moment? “My most memorable moment in DECA was taking first place at this year’s district competition.”

What’s the hardest part about performing in a DECA competition? “The hardest part of a DECA competition is the role play event. In a team event, partners have 30 minutes to read a scenario and prepare a business presentation for the judge. Having such a short time to come up with a good presentation makes the role play difficult.”

If you could be somebody for a day, who would it be? “I would be Rick Steves so I could get paid to travel across Europe.”

What are your college aspirations?  “I plan to major in International Relations or International Business at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. Before attending college, I will be studying abroad for a year, hopefully on a State Department-sponsored program to Morocco or Germany.”

What would your dream job be once you graduate?   “My dream job is to become a foreign service officer and work in U.S. embassies around the world.”

What are your hobbies? “My hobbies include reading, traveling, swimming, being outside, and listening to music.”

What is your favorite event ever attended? “My favorite DECA event ever attended was this year’s state competition in March. Ashwaubenon had a big group of competitors; so we had a lot of fun together.”

What is your favorite type of music? “I like alternative, indie, folk rock, and singer/songwriter music.”

What is your favorite thing to do on your phone? “Listen to music and go on Instagram.”

What three words describe you? “Hardworking, kind, responsible”

What is your favorite trip(s) ever taken? “When I was 16, I was selected to participate in a 4-H Exchange to Norway. I lived with a host family for three weeks and attended the national Norwegian 4-H camp for one week. Words cannot describe the amazing people I met and places I visited. Another incredible experience I had was a backpacking trip to Isle Royale National Park last summer. It’s in the state of Michigan surrounded by Lake Superior.”
