Alopecian President? Oh yes!

I am running for Student Council President this year. I think it’s a breakthrough, because I may be the first alopecian girl to run for President. This is great especially since I have an edge: Even if they don’t remember the name, they’ll remember the baldness.

My motto is Hemann Makes It Happen, because I plan to do lots of things past presidents have said they would do, but none have ever done it. The post has been short, but sweet. Here is my speech:

Presidential Speech

Some of you know me, Peyton Hemann. Last time I did this kind of thing, it was a pretty big occasion–One Friday in 4th grade, I took off my wig, conducting a Q&A with Steelers NFL player Ryan Shazier to teach students about alopecia, the disease that made me bald. Well, here I am again, this time with a big goal in mind, and I’m asking YOU to vote for me for President of the Student Council. Every year, we have the same old things in the student store. Pencils, pens, erasers, pencil cases. Well, I’m making that better. Here’s to new items, better items, and more fun items. For example, I would put in ”keychain games”, little games that can go anywhere with you. They are fully functional and fun. In addition, I’d introduce new clubs–the Leadership Club, empowering kids to become strong leaders, and the Community Service Club, cleaning up our community one step at a time. Another cool idea is to let students play Minecraft Education Mode in Technology, an amazing learning (and fun) tool that is safe and helps the teaching process. When it comes to qualities, I am productive, trying to get things on my agenda done very quickly, keep my colleagues on track and on schedule, and listen to your opinions and ideas. I would post an Idea Box, so anyone can come up with an idea and drop it there. I’d be open to anything. Robotics club, Unicorn club, Fortnite club, you name it, the sky’s the limit! If you want cool items, exciting clubs, and a president who listens to your ideas, just remember to vote for me, Peyton, because Hemann Makes It Happen!
