Jessica Wei – Recording Secretary

1. Why are you running for this position?

I want to help not only improve Student Council, but the community as well. Washington Township along with Student Council has helped me in ways that made me the person I am today. With the support of everyone around me, it has changed me to be a more grateful and positive person. If I win this position, I want to give back and show appreciation.


2. What qualities do you have that make you stand out compared to
other candidates?

I am a strong leader and dedicated to Student Council. I am also a quick thinker and do very well under pressure. No matter the situation that Student Council could be faced with, I will be able to come up with solution to any large or small situation. I am also reliable, if I am ever needed to do anything I will be there to help to the best of my abilities and resolve any conflicts with anything going on. Along with that I am also creative and have a large imagination. I’m always thinking outside the box to improve things and make them look/appeal to the best it possibly could.


3. What do you believe would make you a great student leader?

My strong leadership expertise is supported by my public speaking ability no matter how large or small the audience and my strength to take control at any given time. These skills are what good leaders have, but great leaders are also able to connect with others and get along in groups which is what I can do as well.


4. If you win, what do you want your legacy to be at Township?

I want to be known as someone who changed Township for the better. Even if it’s something huge or minor, my desired legacy is for my name to be incorporated with something positive and remembered as a girl who was able to redesign something and improve it. Since my early school days of 6th grade, it has always been my dream to change someone in a beneficial way. If it is only one person, I would be more than satisfied with that. After I leave, I also want others to carry it on and pass on change. Being able to inspire my peers would be a dream come true.


5. Who has provided the most positive influence on your development as a leader?

My sister, Kelly Wei. Even though this was my first time being in the same school as her after many years of being apart, at home and in the High School, my sister was always a leader. She would help others when no one was looking, go the extra mile to make sure everyone feels comfortable and included, and kept a smile on her face while doing so. No matter where she goes, there’s a light that shines and automatically her presence just makes someone feel better. Not because of the awards she has gotten, the clubs she’s been in, but because of the change that she’s done for others. Her actions inspire me to become a leader and have the same effect on others that she does.
