(B) A High School Student Comments on why she wants to be a
Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien High School Intern Program

Last Tuesday, in our Government class, our substitute teacher began a discussion about the abuses of executive power in our current government. In our school, teachers are greatly discouraged to talk about their political views, yet many do. Our substitute was obviously a Democrat who was totally against our President, and the majority of the students in our class, mostly coming from upper-class Caucasian background, were hard-core Republicans. This seemingly innocent topic fueled into a huge argument about the war, and students began to shout out their own opinions. I looked around to see these girls arguing, then examined myself. It was not that I, Margaret Cho, did not care about politics, I just did not think I knew enough about politics. Then I looked at my friends, xxx Choi and yyy Chung, who were sitting next to me. All three of us were seventeen year old Korean girls who did not seem to care about politics. I wondered to myself why was it that the only three girls who did not participate in the debate happened to be Asian?

Today, I received an e-mail about the 80-20 Initiative, a national Asian-
American organization that encouraged the Asian American community to
politically make a difference in society. This ingenious initiative is designed
to unite 80% of the Asian American votes to one candidate in order to truly
influence the votes. During the presidential campaign, both parties will
realize just how valuable the Asian American vote is, and this desirability
will cause them to consider and examine the needs and wants of our
community. Only through this way can WE raise OUR voices. Only through
this way can WE decide and obtain what WE want.

I am a proud Asian American. I want to be able to voice my political
opinions, not only in Government class, but in the real world.
I wish to
become an intern, so I can fulfill this ambition.
