Chun plans for the future

Haley Nicole Chun wanted to push herself, so she ran for freshman class president.

“I wanted to … push myself a little bit to try to be more confident with others and myself,” she said.

Planning is key to being a council member. As freshman vice president, Chun has to always think about future plans, school activities (assemblies or events), and new ideas. Chun said they have meetings about every other week and it generally lasts for 40 minutes or longer.

One thing she learned from being a vice president is that you should always take a lot of precautions while planning and to advertise the plan more.

Being a vice president can be stressful at times since you are in charge of planning activities and … I am not that experienced with planning activities yet,” she said.

Chun’s goal as a vice president is to make the activities more enjoyable and memorable. She also wants to bring the entire class of 2023 more closer. 

 “It was pretty fun to plan them since I feel like the freshmen will like them.”

“[My favorite quote is] try new things since I might end up liking it, since I want to gain as much experience as possible and see what might interest me or find out what my strengths and weaknesses are and then make it a goal to either become stronger from that or avoid it,” she said.

One thing that Chun enjoys about being a vice president is that she’s able to plan for school activities and contribute to the council. She also enjoys that her voice can be heard by people. Chun said she decided to be a vice president to try new things and see if she would like it or not.

Chun’s proudest achievement was getting a 4.0 for the first time since she believed that she wouldn’t be able to get a 4.0. Her favorite food is palabok and milk tea since she enjoys Asian food. A defining moment of her life would be reaching the peak of a mountain after a long hike. One of Chun’s hobbies is art since she finds it relaxing. She got into art since she did an art project and she got compliments from her teacher for her work. 

“Reaching the top of a mountain from a hike since it feels amazing seeing everything down below right in front of you,” she said.
