Every spring, we elect not only the OEKS (student heads of eight different areas of school) and the Vice President of Student Council but also the Presidents of the 9th grade, sophomore, junior, and senior classes. Each fall, the upper school classes elect a Vice President, the eighth graders elect Co-Presidents, and the seventh graders elect a Class Representative.
This year, we invited the newest members of Student Council to share their campaign speeches. This speech, by Sarah Amzil, Junior Class Vice President, is our first submission.
Dear class of 2021,
It’s me, Sarah Amzil, your classmate since grade 10. Today I stand before you to propose myself for the position of our future class vice president.
First, let me introduce myself.
You might remember me from last year as the quiet little girl with glasses and ponytail. The girl with a bright smile who loved to run. Now, as of this year, running still is my passion, however, I now prefer to wear my hair in a messy bun. But I digress. The reason why I believe that I am capable of filling this position is that I have grown a lot over the past year. Maybe not as much in height, but definitely in level of confidence. I am a well organized, honest, ambitious, goal-oriented, and hardworking team player. I know how to listen closely and communicate effectively for what I stand for.
Some of my goals in filling this position include being a support to our class president, Avdeep, and keeping you all informed. Junior year is filled with events and traditions that need thoughtful planning. I care about every single one in this room and want to make myself approachable whenever, whatever the cause may be. I want to be one of your voices, witness your growth, and make this a memorable year for us.
Also, I want to express my pride of being a part of this class and inform you that I would be honored to serve as your class vice president this year.
