2020 Secretary

Charis Au

1. What unique values, skills, events, or traditions will you bring to the table and your position if elected as an ASB officer for your class? 
    Through my involvement with the South Pasadena Chinese American Club, the Japanese American Community all over Southern California, and Red Cross, I have developed a large mindset around the value of community, education, diversity, and volunteer work. One of the most important things I learned is the importance of giving back to a community that has serviced you. I recognize that all students at South Pasadena High School have contributed in one way or another to the high school experience that we all share whether it be from clubs, ASB, sports, the arts, or even in class. I am grateful for the work that has been put into shaping our school, and I can also recognize that as a community we have many areas in which we can grow. Senior year will be our last year together and many of us have been going to the same school for at least the past 6 years and barely even know each other. If elected as class officer next year I will bring my creativity, organization, and experience to band the class of 2020 together as a community so that high school doesn’t have to be just about SAT scores, AP classes, GPAs, and mental breakdowns but rather about the people around you who you go through it with.

    Hello! I am running for senior class Secretary mainly because I want to be part of the ASB family and I want to treasure great memories of my last year in high school. I want to leave high school knowing that I have contributed my time and participation as an officer of my school. I want to make our school a better place. I understand that being a secretary requires a lot of time and dedication that I am ready and willing to give. I am a very organized and responsible person who can work endlessly to keep track of accurate records. I would love to share my great ideas and represent my senior class. I love you all for electing me as Homecoming Princess and I would appreciate that same love for this class election!

    If I were elected as Senior Class Secretary, my main goals are to reduce the stress of every student on campus, and to spread awareness about mental illnesses. This will allow students to further understand, consult, and comfort one another. I believe that stress is the number one leading factor of depression amongst teenagers, something that the school should be prioritizing, because a student’s health is more important than a grade. I am currently participating in a medical internship at Huntington Family Medicine. At the internship, I helped create a brochure on stress relief, and would love to allow each student the ability to reduce their stress when at school, studying, taking a test; anything to make students feel better on and off campus. I also work as a Recreation Leader for South Pasadena Community Services, where I bolstered my leadership ability by working with my coworkers and kids. This shows that I’m responsible for this position and can use these connections with the city to benefit SPHS, like events. As Senior Class Secretary, I aspire to not only fulfill all of my duties as a Secretary, but also as a valued member of ASB, who’s willing to go above and beyond to help his peers.
