GP I want to be Editor. What test do I have to take, and should I post my paragraph here? Please answer me as quickly as possible as I can run as Editor! Thank you for holding the election!

My paragraph:

I want to be Editor because, personally, I believe I am pretty good at correcting misspelled words and writing. I have been working on a newspaper myself and I think I do a pretty good job on it too. I think I would be a good choice because I believe in writing and that it can be more powerful than force. It can influence others, and as Editor, and I would be able to do that. I believe words are stronger if given good support and TLC {tender loving care}.

Thank you for holding this election! I won't be upset or anything like that if you don't pick me for this election.
RE: my paragraph

Thanks for entering! I don't really pick anyone for it, I just do a basic check of their account and things like that.

I'd love to be editor!
My entry:
    
    The foundation of great writing depends on grammar, a necessity when it comes to writing articles. Literature is so powerful, that it can totally alter one's perspective. If grammatical errors are present in any article, even if it is a true work of writing, it can shatter the trance the reader is set under.

    I honestly think I would be an ideal editor, because I love grammar! Not only is that true, but I've been told I'm quite good at correcting grammatical errors as well. Currently, I am reading at a 12th grade level (no joke!). I am also in the most accelerated English class my grade provides (I sincerly apologize if it sounds like I'm bragging!). I have also written articles for class newspapers before, so I have experience in that area of writing.

   I believe grammar is vital in the world around us and I think that's why I'd be an amazing editor. Thanks!!

Note: I understand if I'm not picked and I'll be okay with that! Gemheart is a great writer and she'd make a wonderful editor. Thanks again!

My entry for Vice President:

Leader: One who guides others toward the achievement of a common goal. Organized, intelligent, and experienced; some of the many qualities that matter when choosing a leader of such an important position.

I believe the pen is mightier than the sword, and the power of the press is the most powerful source their is. What society reads teaches them how to think. How to live. How to organize their home. Saves lives. Ends lives. This means that when you say anything, it creates a footprint in life, especially online. I think that I have good judgment and would be great at approving articles.

Context of articles is one of the most important parts of a newspaper. I am currently reading above college level books (so sorry if this comes off as bragging) and have one many awards for reading (one again, I did not intend to brag) so I believe that I would be a very knowledgeable person towards the point of coming up with topics and themes.

"We are not a team because we work together. We are a team because we respect, trust, and care for each other."- Vala Asher. Like Ms. Asher says, a team needs to respect each other to be a team, and I think that is a very valid point. I am proud to announce that I won my school's Peace Award for helping found an organization for former bullies to get back on track, because most bullies bully because they are having a hard time in life, whether in school, at home, or everywhere in general. I consider myself a positive, accepting person and would be glad to help those in our group who are bullied or are being bullies and realize they want to stop but don't know how. I also know when to put my foot down though, and when it is the correct time to punish (expel, suspend) someone for their actions. 

These are a few of the many overall reasons I think I would be a fantastic choice for Vice President. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions or for more reasons. Thank you for your consideration!
