Hey Indiana BPA, my name is Emma Lewis and I am your 2015-2016 Indiana State President. I am junior at Blue River Valley Jr./Sr. High School.

Since that day, I have strived to be a bigger part of this wonderful organization! BPA has helped me develop lifelong skills that I will always cherish. Also, BPA has helped me meet new and exciting people all over the country from Alaska to Florida. Outside of BPA, I am involved in many other organizations like S.A.D.D. and Forever Friends. Whenever I have free time, I like to play basketball, read, and spend time with my family and friends. I am especially excited to be working with this year's State Officer Leadership Team. I hope you guys are already because this is going to be a great year!
