I’m posting this a little later than most people have, and I know this speech is a little long, but please read until the end. thanks!
Hello, Evs, Nevs, and everyone in between! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Grace, and I’m a second-year 50/50 girl. I believe that a good leader should get to know the people they’re leading and vice versa, so I’d love to learn more about you guys in the comments! In the meantime, here’s some facts about me:
I’m a lesbian, and use she/her pronouns
I live in England, which is why it may seem like I’m online at super weird times haha
I love reading, but writing isn’t really my thing, so please forgive me if this speech isn’t up to the same standard as the other candidates
I also love drawing, musicals, and just music in general – I play the saxophone and am learning how to play the guitar
I joined the site in December 2018, around the time the Golden Age was coming to an end. I didn’t know what to expect, but it was certainly different to what I had imagined. In other online communities, or at least the ones I have experience with, people tend to exclude newbies and expect them to fend for themselves – but here, it was the exact opposite. Everyone was so lovely and welcoming, and people commented on my first post giving me tips about what to do on the site. That, especially, was what made me stay on the site rather than leaving as quickly as I came – all the awesome people. Over the course of the next five months or so, I made friends with the most amazing people, and there hasn’t been a single day where I’ve regretted it. We’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together, we’ve smiled together, but most importantly, we’ve helped each other. Even though they might not know it, they helped me so much when a close family member died last October, and I will be forever grateful for that. They, and everyone else on the site, have shaped me as a person, and I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for them.
I believe I would be a good leader because I work well in a team. While I don’t have much experience with creating clubs and RPs, I’ve taken part in a numerous amount – Art Club, Watermelonia, and Murder in Mercy, to name a few – which have helped build on my teamwork skills. Inclusiveness is very important to me, which is why, if I am elected, I will strive for everyone to feel like they belong on the site, whether they’re a newbie, oldie, or something in the middle. It seems like there’s an invisible divide between newbies and oldies, and I aim to bridge that gap – we could hold regular events, such as food fights and parties so that people can get to know each other better, and a friendship program could be set up, like the very successful one Cove (@thecoven4ever) organised last year. On that note, feel free to tag me in your activity, or message me on Discord (orange juice slaps #3507) or Tumblr (that-boleyn-girl), whether you need help with something or just want to chat!
In my time on the site, I’ve had countless fun and fulfilling opportunities. I’ve been part of many clubs and RPs, such as Rainbow Club, Lux Ac Nox Terrae and the Cosmic Spectrum Wolf Pack, and I’ve met awesome people through all of these. In some of these clubs I’ve held leadership positions, for example being the Seed State Representative in Watermelonia. In addition, I have some on-site leadership experience as well: I used to teach History of Villainy, I was elected to become one of the Open Chat elders last summer, and I ran in last year’s School Master election. I’ve also participated in various events: I’ve been in the last three Trials and will be competing in the next one, and placed second in the Spring Circus of Talents 2019. They’re all so much fun and are run by the most amazing people, so I really recommend signing up for them when you can!
I’m sure you’re getting bored by now, so I’m going to end this speech by asking you to please consider voting for me (but please don’t feel obligated to!). As I said before, don’t be afraid to tag me in your activity, or drop me a message on Discord or Tumblr, and I’ll respond as soon as I can! I love you guys!

That was an amazing speech Gracie! I completely agree about bridging the gap, and it’s so great you brought it up <3. Really nice job!
Awesome speech! I loved how you included facts about yourself here so we can know you better. And yes, one of the things I love about the site is that we’re really supportive of each other. Amazing!
Amazing speech Grace! I agree, we should definitely bring together oldies and newbies more!
