Why am I running for governor?
I BELIEVE IN JSA. My peers in JSA constantly inspire me with their unique intellect, their passion, their dedication, and their competence. I truly believe that these qualities are deep-rooted in every single young person, but unfortunately, many are not reminded of this and are ultimately unempowered. I know from experience that JSA develops confidence helps and students find themselves. When I was an underclassman, JSA not only satiated my voracious desire for debate and political discussion, but it gave me a place among my peers--a new identity to be proud of. I know that I am not alone in this. I have seen so many individuals grow with me from hesitant newcomers to assertive, articulate, and informed young leaders. I am running because the organization inspires me. I am running because the leaders before me who have built up and maintained the Midwest have made a profound impact on my life and on the lives of so many others. I want to be able to pass on the experiences that I had and motivate every single student so that they are unequivocally certain that their voices truly matter. Whether or not I win this election, I want every freshman to know that starting out, I was just like them, if not less confident and less aware. I didn’t know how conventions worked and elected officials seemed far older and far more accomplished than I’d ever be. I want to motivate them to make that speech. Ask that question. Run for chapter exec. Apply for Midwest Cabinet. Be the people.
