When I was in 5th grade I ran for class president and lost. I was so devastated! I created a whole slogan and everything, "Aiyana Glover the Fun Lover!" How could that not have won? (I will say the competition promised longer recess which was a lie... not that I'm salty or anything) But the point is for YEARS afterwards I never ran for anything again because I was afraid. I have always hated rejection...
So fast forward nearly a decade later and in 2017 decided to break the cycle and run for Miss Senior at The Virginia State University (for the 2017-2018 school year) and surprise I WON! Long story short don't let fear keep you away from your potential.
