When the ASB president had announced that they had positions for the class of 2023 ASB, I felt that I had a chance to actually win an election, having lost past elections by an inch. However, the position wasn't going to come to me easily.
The Election of 2014- Distant Past
Please vote for me, I like math
Last year, when I was in the eight grade, there was a program for all of the talented kids that had a gpa above a 3.5, which was called National Junior Honor Society. This program had the same positions as ASB, so I ran for the same position as this year,treasurer. Moreover, I lost the election and ended up as a sub-officer for treasurer. I was devistated
Vote for me because I would make a great treasurer
Two years ago, in the seventh grade. During the middle of the school year, nearing the end, the ASB from the past year had set up posters for the new ASB officers. So I went to the interview, and a week later, they posted the results for who was going to be the next officer for treasurer. I lost badly, almost no one had voted for me. But there was always next year, I told myself.
Thank you Samueli Academy
Probably like 5 years ago, in the fourth grade I was accepted into my new school, and my fourth grade teacher said that they had student council. I was interested in becoming the treasurer at such a young age so I went to the meeting, and immediately started to work on my poster. They were horrible but still, with my small, meat hands I ran and then lost it to a sixth grader. After the election I cried, I did think that had a chance but I wasn't good enough.
Now, as I grew older, all of the nostalgia came back to me from all of the past elections to this one next week, if I win I will finally feel accomplished after my 5 year lost streak. If I don't win I will feel as if some one has punched me in the gut really hard that it made my teeth fall out, and it would make me never to run for any position again.
As the election will come to an end, if I do end up losing the election for the third time in a row, instead of being devastated, I'll just accept the fact that their are more important that do deserve the role more than me and I'll move on and focus on my studies, to be come the valedictorian of the class of 2023.
