What are your goals for your presidency this year?
As president, I hope to make the best out of this situation we are all currently in and create a comfortable and fun atmosphere for our students. With the loss of so many activities, one of my goals is to take advantage of going online and finding creative ways to continue encouraging the student body. Another goal of mine is to heighten the support for students struggling in the middle of this pandemic, ensuring that they know to rely on their ASB whenever they are faced with difficulties and/or questions. Lastly, I hope to help my school create positive, long-lasting memories that they can take with them as they move forward.
How do you feel about your leadership team?
I feel very confident in the current ASB as they are all talented and bright individuals with their own set of strengths and skills. They are all very hard working and I feel very assured knowing that I can rely on them. I am very excited to work with all of them and cannot wait to see what we can accomplish together!
What kind of music do you like listening to?
I enjoy listening to Japanese pop, 70s/80s rock, and classical music!
Who are your inspirations?
Everyday, I am inspired by my parents and my sisters who are all so incredibly hard-working and supportive. I would not have been able to accomplish what I have without them. I am also deeply inspired by the previous ASB presidents and find myself motivated by their leadership and confidence.
What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is having my voice go unheard. However, I’m learning to continue speaking up despite that!
What motivates you to work hard?
