2020-2021 State Officers

President: Khushi Sabuwala

Hi New Jersey TSA! My name is Khushi Sabuwala and I am your 2020-2021 State President. I am currently a senior at High Technology High School and this is my seventh year in TSA. I am looking forward to leading the state board and making this year a successful year! Since 6th grade, I have attended several state and national conferences. Some of my favorite events include Chapter Team, Dragster, and Animatronics. I have also participated in my chapter’s TEAMS team and am a member of TSA’s Technology Honor Society. In my previous years of being a part of TSA, I have been honored to have served as NJ TSA’s Secretary and Sergeant-at-Arms, in addition to my middle school chapter’s President and Parliamentarian. Outside of TSA, I have pursued Indian classical dancing for over 10 years and have taught for about 2 years now. I also enjoy playing the trumpet and this is my third year as my school’s jazz band director and am a part of the pit band for our spring musical. In my free time, I enjoy watching football and cooking. Looking back, I am truly glad that I joined TSA back in 6th grade as it has become such a large part of my life and helped me develop a continuous passion for STEM. I am thrilled to be spending my final year in TSA with all of you and hope that we can all move “together towards tomorrow”!

 

 Vice-President: Olivia Lieberman

Hi NJ TSA! My name’s Olivia Lieberman, and I’m proud to be your state Vice President. I’m currently a senior at Freehold Township’s International Baccalaureate program. This is my fourth year in TSA, and my second year on the state board. Outside of STEM, my main passions are social justice and the arts. Besides that, I love to read, watch anime, write, draw, and play guitar. I’m looking forward to this year and working with all of you!

 

Secretary: Madison Dawson

Hello NJ TSA! My name is Madison Dawson, and I am a senior at Howell High School. After trying out a multitude of clubs my freshman year, TSA was the only one that really struck my interest. Despite how overwhelming the rules seemed at first, TSA quickly became my favorite part of high school. Specifically, the competitions such as Board Game Design, Children’s Stories, and TechBowl, have taught me so much, not just about the design process or how to document my projects, but how to work in a team, as well. TSA is responsible for so many of my greatest memories, and hopefully, as state secretary, I can help provide a better experience for NJ TSA’s members

Treasurer: Juliana Minniti

Hi New Jersey TSA! My name is Juliana Minniti, and I am your 2020-2021 NJ State Treasurer. I am currently a senior at Clearview Regional High School, and this is my third year in TSA. In my first year, I attended Nationals for Biotechnology Design and Technology Problem Solving. In my second year, I served as my chapter’s TSA Treasurer. Although I was unable to compete in the state and national conferences my second year due to Covid-19, it was still a great year in TSA. Outside of TSA, I am an active officer of Math League and President of Key Club. I am also a member of Science League, Red Cross Club, Environmental Club, the softball team, and the tennis team. I enjoy playing ukulele and guitar, writing poetry, and going on nature hikes in my free time. TSA has made a significant impact in my life. It has grown my passion for STEM, taught me leadership and communication skills, and has led me to meet some of my best friends today. I am looking forward to what this year will bring and can’t wait to see what we accomplish together in New Jersey TSA!
