Congratulations & Bravo!
You made it! Let’s recap on how they have got the position they vied for: getting tutor recommendation letter, preparing presentations, giving speech to students and teaching staff. What a journey!
Our elections started during September and finally ended in October. I ran for the vice president role and to be fair, I didn’t expect a success. There were 3 other candidates, all of whom were excellent students and capable of the role of vice president as well as I am. We conducted our first campaign speech on the 22nd of September. I have to be honest, I didn’t prepare for the speech at all. Everything I said and discussed on stage were improvised, through which I mainly focused upon communicating with the audience instead of boasting how well I can fulfill this role. The announcing of the results raised a high tension, and I was fully expecting myself to fail. In fact, I was consoling myself already when it was announced that I became the vice-president!
Now that we have fully engaged in day-today-matters of the council, I find it slightly more challenging then what I have thought, and it was difficult at first, to manage my time and to communicate with everyone, but now everyone is fitting into their roles and managing perfectly!
During the campaign, we were very competitive and we had a lot of reversals. We gave two speeches, and since there were more competitors, we needed a second campaign. However, I am not afraid of more competition, and I am honored to be their competition. Relying on my rich experience and efforts, I stayed up late at night to prepare speeches and ppt.
The next day, I made a bold speech on the stage and convinced my classmates to trust me and give me the positions. I won with 64 percent of the vote. I am very honored to get this position. I have been working hard for the school, putting forward effective plans in every meeting, and trying to lead the students to make the school better together.
Creat a SUIS community that we can all call family even after 20 or 30 years.
Still remember my campaign slogan "what is the difference between human and salty fish without dream"? In the 12 years of being a student, it is not infrequent that I hear the first thing people do when they dream of seemingly impossible goals is osimply to lower their goals. But no SUIS student wants to be that salty fish, and that's what the student council is here for. It will be the place where we dream, where we map and seek help for our dreams, and where we accomplish our dreams. SUIS Sanlin may or may not the place where the dream all of SUIS students began, but it will surely be the place where SUIS students initiate their first step towards accomplishing the dreams.
Personally, my aim their year to bypass the challenges we face to create a strong and collective SUIS community that enhances our academic and social experience at SUIS and an alumni base that will benefit us years beyond the start of our dreams at SUIS.
I have a lot of dreams, and a part of that is to lead this student council to accomplish the dreams of all SUIS students. It is my deep honour to lead the wonderful SUIS student family in the year ahead, and create a community that we can still call family after 20 or 30 years later.
