Mr. Narendra Modi, Martin Luther King Jr, Kamala Harris, and Abraham Lincoln. They are all well-known people. But what makes them so great? It’s not because they are perfect individuals, but because they are amazing leaders. But what makes an extraordinary leader? An extraordinary leader is someone who knows how to turn vision into reality. Someone who understands people and works with them to go places and accomplish things that one person cannot do alone.
I am Rujuta Savanur from 9A, running for the post of Jaguar Vice-Captain for the year 2021-2022. I am extremely thankful to Principal Ma’am and all of my teachers, who nominated me and thought me worthy of this post. I have been in Jaguar house for the past few years, and it has been an amazing experience. Now, I have been given an excellent opportunity to give back to the house and the school has given me so much.
Being a productive leader includes being able to understand, channel, and utilize every individual’s talents and capabilities. As vice-captain, I would like to be able to recognize everyone’s strengths and aim to better every person. Every single person in this house has enormous untapped potential and making sure to unleash that is something I look forward to doing.
Creating an environment for victory includes being able to communicate freely. I want to make sure that every individual feels comfortable and has a sense of belonging and purpose as a member of this house. With my approachable personality, I would never shy away from addressing a problem, no matter what it is or who is facing it. I think with me as your vice-captain we could together build a strong foundation for our house and forge stronger connections among our fellow Jaguarites.
However, a goal without a plan is just a wish. Visualization, implementation, and execution of a well-thought-out plan require determination, perseverance, and hard work. These are qualities that I am anything but short of. I have always been taught to give my best, and once I put my mind to something, there’s no stopping my team.
It is not necessary that the greatest leader is the one who does the biggest things. He is the one who inspires people to do great work. These are the words I want to lead by and strive to live by each day. But I cannot do all this alone. I need your support. Please vote for me as your Jaguar vice-captain, and together we will work to make our biggest dreams a reality!
Thank you and may the best candidate win!
