I can imagine looking back at this video afew years later & simply, smiling to myself...
I must say, this year's elections were friendly. Or maybe, just SO MUCH MORE FRIENDLY compared to last year's...
After that, all of us had to take down ALL our posters.
Ohwells... :( All good things have to come to an end right?
There were LOTS of people!
Had the girls to support us! & of course, our own ex main-comms... ^^
Even he himself laughed...
Here's the Results!...
TPSUonline President of BSC - Samantha Whang & Vice President of BSC- Shawn Loy, Congrats!
Whang Yan Ni Samantha - 303 Votes.
My name was the last (If I'm not wrong) to be announced. I thought the other guys with 200+ votes will be P & VP already, I was damn prepared to take the role of Welfare Sec which I eyed ever since I said I was going to rerun. But no, the announcer announced my name & 350votes came along with it coupled by arousing applauses and screams/shouts. I was stunned and shocked.I could hear my maincommsAY10/11, maincommsAY11/12, SKELTO Freshies & my other close friends. They came up to me to congratulate me. I faced them with a smile but at that moment, I really... couldn't think at all, not to even say thinking straight. I couldn't believe it. God gave me the best - President. WOW! Since he put me to it, he will put me through it.
This year, This role... will be a HUGE test of my trust and faith in God.
I know I have to rely on God more than anyone else and that only he who made me knows me best.
Hoping I can be a salt & light to the school & to people around me just makes me feel good because I am able to spread the word of God through my own actions. That's the only thing I can do for my God who loves me so.
1. How do you feel about your win?
It is my privilege and my honour to be elected as the president for this new AY. The title of president is but a small role which I play in this very big picture & I am honoured to be given the opportunity to do serve the student body and lead the school.
When the results was announced, I was shocked yet happy at the same time. Shocked because though I am a re-runner(I served 1year as a maincomm last year already) I didn't expect to get so many votes. Happy because I managed to garner so many votes which represented my voters trust & faith in me, but this happiness was short lived at that instance, because this joy comes with great responsibilities. I quickly came round and thought to myself 'OH WOW WHAT JUST HAPPENED! It's a one-year 'contract' that I have just gotten myself into!' As much as I was shocked and couldn't think straight at that point of time, I told myself that I will just be honoured and humbly accept the presidential position so as to not let my voters down. Yup, so now that I have calmed down and sort my life out a little, I'm quite excited because I now have the authority to make changes to Business school.
2. So now that you are the president of BSC, what are your plans for BSC?
As the president of BSC, I’m not just a figurehead of the school and club, nor am I just a decision maker on behalf of my main committee. This is a real job with real hard work. But I'm prepared for it. Personally, I would like BSC to be portrayed as the voice for the students.
This year will be a very exciting journey for Business School as my committee has many plans and visions in store for all of us. Great plans ahead - We aim to develop leaders out of our sub-committee members as well as to work closely with our Business- Interest Groups (IGs) and the 9 other constituent clubs of the P10. Afterall, TP is one big family!♥
I would want my committee to plan events which bond Business school students together. To the extend that they would say " I am a proud student of Temasek Business School"
To my 14 main committee members, please bear with me for the times that I may be a perfectionist in doing work but that's because I believe that our students we are representing deserves it and I refuse to settle for anything less than what I know we’re all capable of achieving together as 1 committee.
It’s going to be a tough year ahead, but as one main committee, we’ll stay strong and we will get there. Since it's a journey all 15 of us has to go through, let's make it a good and memorable one!
