Being a senior at Mater Dei High School, I am a student, but I am also a citizen. I am a citizen of Mater Dei-ville. Mater Dei has a very unique and intricate system as to how the student council (or the government as we call it) runs. There is a mayor, clerk, and judge which run the different sections of our government, I, madom clerk, was inaugurated at my very own special ceremony which was ran by our principal. After that inauguration ceremony, I had the privilege of swearing in the remaining council members including the mayor and judge. I then delivered an encouraging speech to the school and made my promises to fulfil the office of clerk. Mater Dei's student government has truly helped me grow into the person that I am today. I am thankful that my parents chose for me to go to Mater Dei because if I could go back now, I would not change a single thing.
