A student attending St. Andrew’s Junior College (SAJC) in Singapore rallied the support of the internet for her student council election run after posting a viral TikTok campaign video.
While rapping and dancing to the Spice Girls’ song “Wannabe,” the student, who is identified only as Priyanka, put her own twist on the song with original lyrics explaining why her peers should vote for her.
Some of the major points of her campaign included her “oratory skills to voice opinions” and belief that she can “help improve” the school to become a “wholesome community.”
According to AsiaOne, the video had gathered more than 647,300 views and 60,000 likes within a day of its posting, with many users commenting with their support for the candidate even if they could not participate in voting.
The video has now accrued over 890,000 views and 72,000 likes at the time of this writing, with many users continuing to root for Priyanka.
One TikTok user commented, “im not frm sajc but i’ll still vote for you” while another jokingly wrote, “im doing uni in uk now but i’ll vote for priyanka r11 from sajc”.
Priyanka responded to the surge of support she received by thanking the viewers for their comments.
