“Leadership: it is not a position or a title, it is an action and an example.”
Good morning Principal Ma’am, Teachers, and my dear friends, I am Tejas Ghorpade from class 9th C, and I stand before you as a nominee for the post of Jaguar House Vice-Captain.
I would like to begin by expressing my gratitude to the teachers for considering me worthy of this position. With great powers comes even greater responsibility, I realize that; it is a privilege to have the honor and I am confident that I will be a suitable candidate.
I aim to be a good leader who you can look up to, as well as a friend you can simply talk to. More so during these tough times, where I pray that all are doing well. I wish to walk alongside you, on the path best suitable for our growth.
From being largely involved in sports, to performing well in academics; I believe in maintaining a healthy balance between academics and co-curricular activities, as both are vital for character building. I am passionate about football, it has taught me teamwork and to never give up, even if I slip and fall. We all know, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. And we, Jaguarites, definitely are tough.
Red, the color of passion, energy, strength, and power, is what unites us. Red binds us, makes us a family thicker than blood. Red, the symbol of danger, is what others should feel when they see us. Jaguarites, it has been too long since the Top Cat was ours, and I want us to excel, everywhere, to bring that honor home.
I promise to always be there, for each one of you and for our house. I will give my best and support you to give yours, and together we will make this happen. Instead of searching for the light at the end of the tunnel, we need to be that light. For us, For Jaguar.
So please support me, and I promise to make it worth your vote. Regardless of the result, I will always be there to help you. May the best candidate win.
Thank you and stay safe.
