I believe that I possess the characteristics trait of being a risk taker as I have pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone with courage and forethought. Ever since I was little, the thing that frightened me more than anything else was to perform or talk in front of people alone. However, as I grew up I learned that in order to be more successful in school and in life, I must overcome my fear of performing and public speaking. It took me a lot of courage to step out of this comfort zone but I have proofed to myself that I am capable of doing this through joining the Voice of CDNIS where I performed solo (Evidence 1). I have also signed myself up for the election of USSC where applicants were required to talk in front of the whole upper school (Evidence 2).

Raven House Captain Speech
Good Morning everyone. For those who don’t know me, My name is Natasha I have been in Raven house for 4 years now. I have participated in school events in every single field: academic, sport, art, music and social representation. I know very well that becoming a house captain would require every one of experience that I could squeeze out of these events. In other words, I will be no stranger or beginner in any challenge that you would put me to. That means, that I am capable of this job.
Members of the raven house, I am not THE type of person who walks into the room and everyone would automatically stare at me. I’m definitely not the nicest, friendly or considerate person in this room; nor will I ever be. But what I lack, I make up with reliability and loyalty. I will stand up for the members of this house. I will give you nothing less than my very best effort. I will make sure every single one of you enjoy being part of this house. I want you all to have a fun year.
Vote Natasha, for Raven House captain.
