an interview with our head girl 2021

BY Wade-Lee Mulller

Riebeek College Girls' High School Head Girl 2021
Wade-Lee Müller
What are you looking forward to most during your term as leader?  "Leadership is about inspiring people to do things they never thought they could." As Head Girl, I want to inspire others to do better, to get involved and to be different. I'm looking forward to not only inspiring others, but to being inspired by others. As a leader, I want to build others up to lead, so that a space is created where we can all learn, motivate and encourage one another to be better and to do better!
 What are your strengths and weaknesses?  Being a good team player and acquiring good people skills are strengths that have been nurtured over the years from participating in hockey, tennis and cultural and service committees. I think it is important to know how to lead people, but this is only possible if you know how to work well with others because a team leader needs a team. A leader needs to be accommodating. However, my weakness would be that I come across as too eager at times and compromise my own well-being.
Is there anything you would like to change at your school? Riebeek College has already improved our tennis courts and bathroom facilities and introduced a new uniform. I am extremely grateful for the new and improved tennis courts as this is where I find myself after school. While playing tennis is one of my passions, I want other learners to pursue their passions too. Therefore, I would want the school to introduce more artistic activities such as design, fashion and dance for learners who would like to explore their creative flair. 
What do you love most about your school?  The sense of unity among the learners and staff and the spirit of 'we are all in this together’. I think this stems from the diverse cultures, sport and committees Riebeek College offers, where learners are able to grow and develop their skills in team effort and leadership.
Matric is your final year, from an academic point of view, what are you aiming for?  As I enter my final school year, I would like to embrace my last opportunity as a Riebeek girl by continuing to follow our school motto Ora Et Labora - pray and work. This year will indeed require much prayer and hard work. My goal is to remain focused and constantly strive for improvement in my academics along with balancing my sport, cultural and social activities too.
What will your message of encouragement be for your prefects/co-leaders?  I truly believe we were all placed in this leadership position for a plan and purpose. I must remind you that in essence, leadership is not a position it is action. Therefore, I would like to encourage the prefects of 2021 to never doubt their position as a prefect but to remember that, with this position, we have been given the opportunity to lead by example, bring about change, and speak up for others. Let us shine our lights to build a bright and positive impact in our school!
Who is your role model?  The people I surround myself with have all inspired me or taught me something valuable. But, my mother deserves the top title as my role model. Her resilience has taught me to never give up, no matter the circumstance. I admire her selflessness.  Her confidence and joyful spirit lights up any room. My mother continues to show my sister and I constant love and support in all we do. I am unconditionally thankful for that!
What are your plans after matric in 2022? I wish to pursue a careeras an entrepreneur. I plan to study a B.Com in Business Management. I would also like to be involved in more charity work, especially for women and children.
 If you could be any superhero, who do you want to be and why?  I would want to be Wonder Woman, not only for her superhuman strength, but because she believes that, “Only love can truly save the world," which I agree with wholeheartedly. The fact that my name also starts with the letter 'w' is purely coincidental!
 On a regular Saturday, you will find me at...with..?  On a regular Saturday, you will find me outside enjoying a braai with my family or cooking up a storm in the kitchen with my mother. I try to balance work and play on weekends by spending time with family and friends and also ensuring I stay on track with my school work.
Who is your Hollywood celeb crush?  Starring in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Riverdale and Five Feet Apart, my Hollywood crush has to be Cole Sprouse.
 Netball, rugby, cricket or hockey?  Hockey
Cappuccino, hot chocolate, or tea?  Cappuccino
 Braai with friends or takeaways? Braai with friends
 Binge watching series or a live musical festival?  Live musical festival
Android or IOS?  IOS
