Associated Student Body (ASB) Vice President Kikuye Fujii lives a pretty busy live, to
say the least. She is one of the six officers of the ASB, the students who do the majority of work
in leading the Leadership Class. She is in charge of some of Armijo’s most spirited and exciting
events. Being an ASB officer is a huge role and responsibility. It requires lots of dedication and
passion. Even though the role is daunting, Fujii was drawn to the role.
“I wanted to be an ASB officer because I saw it as a challenge, and I saw all the
potential to change the Leadership program to make it better. I wanted to be a part of that
change,” said Fujii.
After only a few months in the school year, Fujii has been able to put on some great
events. Her first event was Club Fair, the annual showcase of the wide array of Armijo’s clubs. A
huge success, it allowed many of Armijo’s clubs to recruit new members. In these few months,
Fujii has learned a lot in her position. “I’ve learned that I can’t do everything, and sometimes I
need to put my foot down,” she said. She has also come to realize the importance of deadlines.
Even though her position can sometimes be challenging, she is thankful for her fellow officers.
She noted how they have a very-close knit ASB panel, and that all of the officers have a great
relationship. She considers them family and knows that she can turn to them for help at any
time.
Fujii’s biggest goal as an ASB officer is to allow students to share their thoughts and to
be unafraid of getting involved. “I want to get people out of their comfort zone,” she said. Fujii
loves seeing the first- and second-year students in leadership branching out and trying new
things. She hopes that they will build the confidence to break out of their comfort zone.
When she is not busy with Leadership and officer duties, Fujii loves to play with her
makeup, binge watch Netflix shows, practice hula, and spend time with her family. Three things
that are most important to her are time, family, and confidence. “Time is valuable because you
can’t get it back, family is all that you really have and, without confidence, you can’t have a good
time,” she said. With only a few months left as a high school student, Fujii is looking forward to
“making memories and leaving behind a good message with the underclassmen.”
“Right now we are in the process of working on Rival Week, but we had a big setback
because of the fires,” she said. Rival Week refers to the festivities leading up to the big football
game against Rodriguez High, which happens to also be Homecoming. Despite the setback of
school cancellations and the local wildfires, Fujii and the rest of the leadership students running
the event have been able to adjust. They are definitely excited for Rival Week and they hope to
make it a fun series of events for all students on campus.
