First, just because I campaigned on social media, he and his friends claimed that it is not "fair" for me to advertise myself on my own account, even though it was the place I could express myself. Because I knew I would campaign on social media, I made him an account, and he viewed 'stories' I posted, it can be concluded that it's his fault for not utilizing his resource for publicity.
He abused the miscommunication between the teacher, officers, and I to bring ME down. I was allowed to put up as much as flyers I want due to the vandalized poster due to a irresponsible Senior. I indirectly told him about it, and it apparently was not officially decided. He complained to the teacher, further giving me a "punishment" which heavily affected me on the election.
Also, I noticed he and his friends, whom I thought they were beneficial, "trash-talking" me behind my back. They acted all nice and kind when I was in the conversation, but they called me b**** in the gossip. Because the gossips occurred so much that week, I did not mind it a lot, but I was very disappointed that people I thought I was close to hid the "real-side" of themselves.
Unfortunately, I did not win the election. However, I appreciated my 100% effort, and reminded myself that failure is not falling down.
Noticing my peers using illogical evidences to feel "superior" and benefit themselves, I strongly believe that is not a character of a leader, and it is hypocritical to behave that way while having a campaign to positively change the community. These factors can be improved, and it further allowed me to finally realize that people have two sides of their personality.
Even though I was not able to achieve my goal, I learned a lot from this experience, such as understanding how grateful person I am to have people on my side, even though there might be some against me. Also, I do not regret attempting the "new world" this year.. I hope to have a leader that can share the love of our community and unify the school!
