The Story of 2017-2018 Grade 6 Class Representative
This whole story started from grade five. I had completed my two years in student council as a reporter and a vice president.
Then came the school holidays and that was when I started listing down all the things I can help the school do as a president. I thought of how Theresa May became the prime minister of United Kingdom in July 2016. She became one of my inspirations to be a president. Student Council has given me so much. I made friends and learned how to be a good leader. That is another reason why I decided to join Student Council again.
August the eighth came which is when the school opened. I knew that the Student Council election will not come long after. And that was very true; one week after the school opened, the Student Council was free for signing up. So many people signed up including me. I was very proud to be one of the candidates.
Finally came the pre-election, at that time, my heart was pumping so fast. A few moments later, the election ended. The pre-election was very fast. It was actually like playing in a swimming pool that suddenly turns into a swift stream, then it turns back into a serene pool.
One week later, the pre-election results were on the board. I couldn’t understand why I succeeded. It was a happy but awkward moment. I think that there must have been more people voting. Another concern I wished to know was that why are there only two people instead of three? In the end I came to know that the third person was a tie between two people. I thought at that time that even though I am president or not, I will still be in the Student Council to work for everybody.
Here is where the most exciting part started. I started writing my speech and making my poster; every part of the poster represented something. For example, the box represented voting for me and the logo of AITIS represented my love and care for the school.
The final election came. This time it was like a garden suddenly becoming the Himalaya Mountains, then it turned into deep Pacific Ocean, then again into a peaceful garden; the election ended in no time.
Without knowing, the results were in Mrs. Hasmina’s room and this was only for the student council, I was grade 6 class representative. According to my dreams and inspirations from above, I am still able to serve the school and be in the Student Council. This story teaches me that whether I win or lose in anything, I should look at the positive side of what I’ve got. It is a good opportunity being a class representative after all. This year, I will do all my best and focus on my next story.
