When I ran for class president in the third grade, I won. The runner-up became my vice-president.

Need for philanthropy org recognized

I never liked clubs. Going to first meetings of any club was always awkward, and there were hardly any enthusiastic attendees. The first meeting was always the last meeting I would attend. A club or organization should consist of people who encourage and influence each other positively within an area of interest.   Communication is […]
