Why should students vote for you?

As a member of council I hope to make a difference in this school. However, after a lifetime of blunders, I know that nobody’s ideas, mine included, are perfect. Thus I hope to be a listener and a voice of the students. I will always do what the community, as a whole, agrees on. Every voice matters and every voice should be heard. As I apply for this position, I can not tell what I hope for the future of ISM, I can only ask what my fellow bearcats see. Whether it is through surveys, or visits to every class, I will hear every opinion. If it is newer schedules, more activities, or a new service learning program, I will help to implement it. The only promise I can make to students is that I will always give it my 100% to make the change that they look forward to.

Why should students vote for you?

I think students should vote for me because I genuinely am passionate about helping the student body. Hence, no matter what the job, I will work tirelessly until it is completed. Additionally,  believe that my past experience in both freshman and sophomore council, as well as ISSBA has enabled me to understand perspectives not just from my grade, but the perspectives from all other grades and fully understand my role. I am open to anything. I am willing to accept any idea or feedback from anybody, viewing each equally. I understand, that any individual can come up with valuable insights on anything. Additionally, I also understand the importance of multiple perspectives, how I may view an issue may be completely different from how another person may view it. I have learnt that things will now always go as intended; thus, I am willing to adapt to any situation as I understand that flexibility is vital component to anything.  Lastly, I understand the importance of criticism. I never see it in a negative light. I believe when people provide me with criticism, it serves as an opportunity to improve myself to do something better, and in this case, serve the student body better.

Why should students vote for you?

You should vote for me not because I am your friend, or because I’ve helped you in the past, but because you deserve a leader who will serve you with the greatest passion for service and the most sincere intention to make a positive impact in our school. I would like to think that I am that leader. I will be committed to all aspects of my position, from designing Google slides for assembly to organizing school-wide events like Battle of the Bearcats and the ES Carnival. I will ensure that everyone is represented in every aspect of the decision-making, from our Tuesday meetings with Mr. Woods to our monthly meetings with the heads of the school. Most importantly, I will see to it that I, along with other members of ISSBA, reach out to all members of our community, getting to know and making connections with not only students but also our staff and service partners.

Why should students vote for you?

I would appreciate your vote for President of Student Council for school year 2016-2017. If elected, I will listen to your concerns and work hard for you. If there is an issue that needs to be solved, I won’t quit until we find the proper solution to it.
Happiness does not come from getting a 7 in math, longer lunch hours, or epic parties with no adult supervision. True happiness comes from being independent. Can you survive out in the real world if all you had was an ISM high school education? May of us today don’t have the necessary LIFE SKILLS to be truly independent; and sadly, many of us will move on to college unprepared for many of the things we take for granted. When I become president, I will lobby for ISM to impart upon us the necessary life skills to be able to survive — interviewing for a job, budgeting & balancing a checkbook, understanding credit and student loans, doing the laundry, basic cooking & healthy eating, household repairs and maintenance, taking public transportation, navigating through subways and airports, performing basic first-aid — these are but a few of the skills we all need to have before graduating from high school.

Why should students vote for you?

Students should vote for me because I can make several guarantees. That I will listen to them, that I will keep the student body in mind in every event and action in my term, and that I will put the students first. I hope to help all of you exhibit your existing talent and skills in every field, from performance to service, and have another fruitful and successful year.
