Faith Ediae-Holly- President


Faith Ediae-Holly is proud to be serving as your state president for 2019-2020! She is currently a junior at Etowah High School where she participates in countless clubs and organizations such as NEHS, The East Wing Tutoring Center, Beta Club, and of course HOSA! Her involvement in HOSA truly began in her sophomore year when she decided to become more involved with her chapter and all of the events they participated in. Through blood drives and countless community outreach activities, she quickly became more invested in her local chapter and Georgia HOSA. HOSA has given her the drive and determination to pursue a career in medicine as a neurosurgeon, and she knows that because of HOSA she will be prepared to be a compassionate and capable future health professional. She cannot wait to help lead some of the best future health professionals that she hopes to one day work alongside, and inspire them now by helping them become the better candidate.


Vaidehi Patel- Vice President


My name is Vaidehi Patel and I am a Junior at Colquitt County High School. In the future, I aspire to become a neurosurgeon. I play the flute, enjoy organizing things, and love pets. I desire to serve as a state officer to make a positive impact on the organization that has helped me to develop myself into not only a better future healthcare professional, but a better individual. I want to help HOSA members recognize the opportunities and potential they have in HOSA that can help them become the better candidate. In the upcoming year, I wish to connect with more HOSA members to help them become active, participating members in this organization and take on new opportunities.


Joyabhishek Charles- Secretary


From the moment Joyabhishek (Joy) Charles joined his HOSA chapter at Americus-Sumter High School, he fell in love with the community of like-minded students who shared his passion for healthcare. Joy wanted to take his admiration further by serving his chapter as an officer; however, he knew that he could still do more for his state’s HOSA organization. For this reason, he decided to apply to be an officer on the 2019-2020 Georgia HOSA State Executive Council. Through living each of HOSA’s core values of learning, leading, serving, and innovating, Joy knew he could use his HOSA leadership experience to serve as a valuable member of the team.

Now, as a state officer, he hopes to inspire Georgia HOSA’s members to take their leadership and passion for healthcare to the next level. Joy will work towards creating an even stronger relationship between the State Executive Council and each of our chapters, especially through innovating new ideas for motivating HOSA members to attend our leadership conferences, participate in competitive events, and most
importantly, to better serve their state and local communities. As a future health professional himself, Joy is working towards a career as a pediatric cardiologist, and knows that his new role at Georgia HOSA, with the support of each of its members and advisors, will continue to steer him in that direction.
