I am a senior at Johnson Sr. High School. I want to make school a better community by having everyone at Johnson know each other and become a family other than people we got to school with. Being a leader to me means that I get to look at what others do and learn from it. I also get to help others when they have a question or if they just wanted to know something. When I face a challenge, I ask other adults if they know what to do and I think of other alternatives. My favorite quote is “whatever happens, happens for a reason”.

Hello Everybody! My name is Jasmine Yang. I am currently a Junior here at Johnson High School.
A few things about myself isI love to interact with people in my community. I love bringing positive vibes.
I am an Asian American student at Johnson senior high school. My name is Jenny and I am a senior at johnson. I have been at johnson for 4 years now and i am glad to say that I will be graduating at johnson. I am a person who is very open minded and always considers peoples input positive or negative. To me leadership is a very important thing because it gives people the chance to make a difference or to speak up about something they are passionate about. When I am face to face with a very difficult challenge I tend to look to my peers and conversate with them about how I should deal with the certain situation. One of my all time favorite quote is “if you fail, never give up because F.A.I.L. means First attempt in learning. End is not the end. On fact E.N.D means Effort never dies. If you get NO as an answer, re,member N.O means Next Opportunity. The reason I find this so inspiring is because it gives you no reason to give up because for me I believe that everything happens for a reason. One advice I would give people is don’t look at the bigger picture for too long or else you’ll lose everything else that matters to you. Look at the smaller moments and just enjoy everything.

“It is the lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believe in myself” - Muhammad Ali
Rose Xiong 1) As a senior at Johnson Senior High School, I strive to become someone who is able to step out of their comfort zone, and help my underclassman feel some sort of comfort within our school. 2) For me, being a leader means stepping up to face new challenges. I believe that by doing this, it makes us stronger and smarter as an individual. When one feels good about themselves, they tend to pass that positive energy onto others, creating more leaders within the process. 3) When facing challenges, I look to others for help. Some may think that asking for help is a sign of weakness however, to me, asking for help makes us smart as we are able to admit that we are stuck, and is willing to ask for the help that we need. 4) Favorite Quote: “Work until your idols become your rivals.” 5) Taking proper care of oneself is very important to me. Whether you like reading, playing games, watching your favorite shows, or simply unwinding to drink a cup of tea, I believe everyone should take some time off within their day to take care of themselves.
Who am I and what am I about? First and foremost I go by the name of Seng Khang, I’m all about having fun. Not even that I want people to be involved, I don’t want students to be sat in a boring class in which they don’t enjoy. I’d rather have the students do something more involved such as competitive activities or fun activities to avoid being bored in school. For me being a leader means? Being a leader means that we the student won’t have to do a lot of homework, I know that a majority of the students do not find homework enjoyable also some students won’t even have enough time to do homework because of work or any other outside forces. Also I want students to enjoy school, I don’t want the students to feel like school is a waste of time, I want students to take away skills even if its just one or two that they can use outside of school. When faced with challenges I look to? I look for a different way to go around it simple. But if you want a long winded answer I’d say I probably go ask someone who’s faced almost the same thing and see if they can give me any hints, the last thing is I’d ask friends for help. Favorite inspirational quote? I’d have to say its “If you only see the world in black and white you won’t get very far in life”

When I face challenges I look up to my mom for help or for an inspiration that everything is going to be okay. My mom isn’t around much but she is also supportive mentally.

Unlike me I doubt myself sometimes believing that I can’t do certain things. But my mom always says, “You can do it.”
