This is nothing major but each new semester, every class for a certain period elects one student from their class to be a student council representative. If only one person is interested, that kid will automatically be the representative from that class. If there are several people interested, the people each have to make short impromptu speeches in front of our class and then the class votes.
What is something I should talk about in my speech that could make my classmates vote for me?
I don't want to be all major like "I'm going to make change by doing blah blah.." because student council representatives (at my school, at least) don't even have enough power to do that sort of stuff.
