What was the most stressful part of the Prefect application process and why?
I think the most stressful part of the prefect application process for me was the interview, as we had very few information regarding how it was going to be, and thus could not prepare ourselves fully. this left me extremely stressed and overthinking about everything I did during the entire day.
Why did you want to be a prefect?
Probably the most important reason why I wanted to become a prefect was because I wanted to give back to the St Paul’s School community. for the past 14 years, this school has provided me with everything from advice to experience, and through this I have further realised the importance of compassion, of giving back, and being a prefect is the perfect to achieve this.
What was the hardest question they asked you in your interview?
I am not going to lie: all of the questions were hard (especially due to stress), but possibly the hardest question I was asked was “Which Part of a Bicycle Would You Least Be and Why” (which I was also told to make specific links to the role of a prefect). This question was asked as a follow-up to the question of “Which Part of a Bicycle Would You Most Be and Why”.
What is your favorite TV show?
What do you want to study in the future and where?
I want to study economics, but not entirely sure where (either US or UK)
Place you most want to visit:
Lençois Marenhenses in Brazil, the pictures and stories that I have seen and heard about the place make it seem magical!
What is one thing you want to change in school?
Student-to-student relationships. Nowadays in school I think younger students are afraid of asking older students for help or advice of any kind, where they would be keen to help and advise; and older students are ashamed of asking younger students for their opinion on things, where they would be keen to share their thoughts.
Any advice for prospective prefects?
Be true to yourself! do not come to your interview with planned answers, as this could lead to your image becoming somewhat entirely monotonous and not at all unique. If you really are fit for the job, let destiny take its course and lead you to it.
