In a speech like this where you have to present yourself as a candidate for a student position, think of introducing yourself and explain why you are a good candidate.  What is there about you which would be helpful to this committee?  Are you good at talking with people you don't know?  Are you good at thinking of new ideas for fundraising?  What leadership skills do you possess?  Are you good at presenting ideas in a logical manner so that the entire committee understands you?  Could they give you a project to lead that you could finish without their constant supervision which would make you a good leader?  What I've tried to do here is to give you ideas to use which would help you write your speech.  Think carefully about what you choose and how other people see you.  Are you someone that others come to for advice or are especially caring about others?  Maybe you could start your speech with WHY you want to be part of this committee and then explain HOW you fit into the goals and work of this committee.  Sounds like you want to be a leader and that this is your first approach to an organization  which would help you learn to be a leader.  I applaud you for wanting to be a leader instead of hiding from the responsibilities leadership requires.  Good luck to you.
