I'm going to be giving my speech to run for Key Club tomorrow..
The speech needs to answer the following questions:
1. Why are you interested in running?
2. What are your qualifications?
3. What are your goals for next year?
4. Why should the club vote for you?
Disadvantages? The girl I'm running against is kind of popular, plus I'm unattractive. I also don't have much leadership experience to speak of for qualifications, nor do I have many connections...
To be honest, part of the reason why I'm running is because I do need leadership positions. But I also want to make a difference as part of Key Club, and becoming vice president can provide more opportunities to make a stronger impact. That doesn't seem like a strong enough reason, though. Most of the members in my Key Club are members primarily for expediency, so it doesn't seem like that would really appeal to them.
I have the typical grades of a CCer (unweighted 3.9 GPA, lots of AP classes, etc)...I'm fairly responsible and organized...as said before, not really much leadership experience. I've run for a lot of other positions before, but I've always lost to more popular/more attractive or simply more qualified people.
