Who am I?
While I was born and raised in the city of Millbrae, I attend Saint Ignatius College Preparatory, a high school in San Francisco. I have been a part of the Millbrae Leos Club for the past 5 years (since 7th grade) and have spent many weekends volunteering at events such as Crab Feeds, Dinner set-ups, city-wide clean-ups, and holiday-related activities. Although these events have long been a staple of Leos activities, I intend to bring about the types of new projects that would better leverage the talent and potential of all the Leos within District 4-C4. I believe that the Leos have the capacity and personnel to tackle more meaningful projects that would generate significant positive community impact, in addition to attaining greater individual fulfillment.
Plastic Recycling/Bench Project
Coordinated with TREX, Safeway, the City of Millbrae government, and the entire Millbrae community to collect over 750 pounds of plastic in just over 8 weeks. Plastic collected will be repurposed into Millbrae park benches.
Involved with the project since inception. Helped lead every plastic sorting event and mentored a younger generation to groom future Leos.
Member of the Millbrae Anti-Racist Coalition, which recently garnered national acclaim and awards for partnering with local government in taking action against the racial injustices in society. Millbrae ARC was recognized by
the National League of Cities for standing in solidarity with those groups who are systemically oppressed and discriminated against.
SI Varsity Soccer and Varsity Rowing
During this COVID school year, soccer and rowing seasons are now overlapping which requires efficient time management in conjunction with a great work ethic in order to succeed in both sports as well as maintaining academic excellence (Current GPA: 4.83).
SI Student Council
Member of Junior Class Council as Clubs Manager and elected to Senior Class Council. Utilized communication, management, and delegation skills to successfully organize events such as Junior Prom and incoming Freshman orientations.
Social Media Educator
Created a channel that in just one year (COVID-19), has generated over 400,000 followers on TikTok, and is dedicated to teaching students how to solve math problems on the SAT. Have received 3.6 million ‘likes’ from students and educators around the world.
Founded a peer-tutoring server on the app DISCORD that allows students at SI to connect with each other (regardless of class) for help on topics they don’t understand. Over 100 students are participants and over 10 teachers are on the server as well. Addresses the problem of students who couldn’t make teacher office hours and still needed help. The next phase would be to connect with SI’s partnered middle school.
Dear Leo’s Election Committee,
On behalf of the Millbrae Leo’s Club, I am pleased to provide my formal endorsement of currently serving Leo’s Vice President Brian Wen in my capacity as Leo’s Advisor, for any/all District 4-C4 Leo office/board positions in the coming elections.
Please find accompanying evidence of Leo Brian’s age and confirmation of his position as currently-serving Vice Presidency of this club.
Leo Brian has impressed me since we first met with his maturity, commitment, and demeanor. He has proven to be resourceful and skilled in his role as a leader of the Millbrae Leo’s. Leo Brian works equally well with our local politicians, local business leaders, all the Millbrae Lions he has come in contact with, his peers, and the younger members of the Millbrae community.
He has demonstrated a willingness to engage in Social Activism, as evidenced by his participation in racial justice initiatives, as well as an amazingly successful math tutoring program that he launched on social media.
I endorse Leo Brian without reservation, I am confident he will make an excellent officer/board member of the Leo’s 4-C4 district.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, happy to provide any additional insight/background that may be useful.
Sincerely yours in Lionism,
Millbrae Lions / Millbrae Leo’s Advisor
President, Millbrae Lions Club
Alyssa Chew (Leo District Director)
I am Alyssa Chew and I am currently a Junior and this is my 4th year being a part of the Leos organization. I am from the Millbrae Leos Club and in the past, I have served as the webmaster and historian for the Millbrae Leos club and currently, I am a director on the Leos District 4-C4 board. I have participated in many Leos activities, from helping out at the Millbrae Machines Car show to introducing guest speakers at the Leos Symposium. I have also helped plan Leos events and activities which include the Holiday cards to the elderly and the Leos Leadership Symposium, which were both conducted district-wide this past year.
The years that I have been in the Leos Club have taught me so much, and I really want to give back and become more involved with the organization, so I have decided to run for the position of being the District Treasurer. I hope that being District Treasurer will allow me to help out more people and give back to the organization even more by becoming a leader to younger Leos. I hope that I will be able to serve the Leos District next year by becoming the District Treasurer.

Election Details (Approved by Constitution & Bylaws Committee)
- President & Vice President Qualifications: (according to the constitution & bylaws)
- Deligation votes
- How the election voting will be conducted
According to the constitution: "A vote may be cast only by a delegate present in person at the time of voting and no delegate may cast more than one vote on any question." Considering we are still in the middle of a pandemic, we have ruled out in-person and paper ballot voting.
The main election voting will be done via Google Form.
To preserve anonymity, each Delegate will be sent a personal voting code. Each voting code will be long randomly generated code.
Each delegate will cast his/her vote by 11pm on Wed April 28.
On the Election Ballot Google Form, it will ask for the voter's voting code, along with their answers for each election question. No name nor email will be asked. Only the code assigner and the delegate will know who received the code.
The Election Ballot Google Form will be closed promptly at 11pm on Wed April 28.
The results will be exported as a Google Sheet. Validations of the voting codes will be performed. Entries with Invalid codes will be thrown out. Delegates can change their answers. The last answer will be kept, all earlier votes will be thrown out. Final results will be posted on Leo District's Election page on April 1st. Delegates can check to see that their votes have been correctly counted.
If there is a clear winner for President & VP, the Zoom mtg on Th April 29th will just be announcing the election results.
If, however, a runoff election is needed (please see the Leo District Constitution for the scenario), then ALL DELEGATES MUST ATTEND THE April 29th's Election Mtg to vote "in-person" for the runoff election. So please take that into consideration when you pick your delegates. We can use Zoom's Poll feature (Leo Lion August will help us run the Zoom Polls) to cast anonymous votes until we reach a clear conclusion on who the next President and VP will be.
Final Election results will be posted on the Leo District website on April 30th.
