IT TOOK HER 3 YEARS AND YES SHE IS THE HAPPIEST PRESIDENT IN HER OWN WAY
University of the East Central Student Council President 3 years in the making.
Ms. April Marie Ramos is a 19 year-old student taking up AB Communication at the University of the East-Caloocan. She ran in the student council election for 3 years. Currently she is the Central Student Council President.
“Winning the student council election is not the greatest achievement for a student leader. It is the things that you are able to do because of that position.”
Being a student leader is not easy. You have to prove yourself to everybody. Some people may think negative about you. It’s not just about you are good you can be a leader, you have to show everyone that you are worthy of being called like one.
“It is very overwhelming to start as a committee then end up as the student council president. I take this as an opportunity to improve myself to be able to give the students of UE a quality student service”
Sometimes being a leader is not always about you. You also need the help of other people to accomplish good things. You are not alone in this world of leadership, helping other people to grow will help you to become a better leader.
“ I owe the things that I was able to accomplish to the student leaders who molded me during my early stay in the university. It’s because of them that I promised myself to encourage our young leaders to take part for the betterment of the student body.”
Being a Student Council President of the University you may able to make a mark to the student body, because of the things that you’ve done and how you socialize with the students.
When people acknowledge your hard work, maybe it is the greatest reward you may get because of your efforts.
“ If there’s any title I would like to have, I would like to be named as the “Happiest President” It might sound a little shallow, but I want to be remembered as someone who experienced a sense of fulfillment by serving others wholeheartedly.”
Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others’ success, and then standing back and letting them shine.-Chris Hadfield
