Meet sophomore Student Council candidate Yasmeen Taranissi

Jacqueline LeBlanc

Why are you running for Student Council?

I’d like to have a say and be able to represent the RBHS community’s opinion and bring the faculty and students together as one.

What impact do you hope to make as a Student Council representative?

Hopefully, I will be able to make RBHS a better environment than it already is and give unheard opinions a voice.

What qualities do you have that makes you qualified to be a Student Council representative?

I can be a great leader. I am easy to talk to, and I am not afraid to speak up if I see wrongdoing.

What are you looking to change in Student Council this year?

I hope to give more people in the RBHS community a voice rather than my own, give the people who can’t speak up for themselves a voice.

What is something you would like to see Rock Bridge more involved in?

I’d like to see rockbridge more involved in more global and worldwide communications and organizations rather than just local matters.

What do you think the Student Body is looking for in a candidate?

I think the student body is looking for someone who will listen to all opinions and be able to lead in improving RBHS.

What activities are you involved in?

I’m involved in MSU, Student Coalition and the National Forensic League.

What would you consider to be your strengths and weaknesses?

Strengths: leading, listening, talking to people, organization

Weaknesses: can be a klutz, sometimes I stress easily

 If you were given $1,000 what would you do with it?

If I was given $1,000, I would buy a plane ticket to Cameroon and use the rest of my money to buy cows and goats and supplies to build wells to give to the people that are starving.

What is one thing you want the Rock Bridge student body to know about you?

You can talk to me about anything and everything whether you need help with homework or advice about your personal life and that will always be true! I am always here and open to help
