Why I love being a student ambassador by Sofia Bulatovic. I am passionate about telling other prospective students that they have come to the right place and that this is the school for them.
Why? Because when I first came to Aiglon last year, I could not believe that such a place existed: somewhere you could study your favourite subjects, go skiing with your friends and then return to your warm and loving house – all in one day!
Today, I am a student ambassador: the first contact between a prospective student (and their parents). I am delighted every time the Admissions Office asks me if I want to give a campus tour for a prospective family – and I absolutely always say yes. Yet there is also the responsibility: the feeling and the experience that the new family has with the ambassador will help determine if they choose Aiglon. From the moment I meet the family to the moment the tour finishes, I give my all to make sure that I am engaging, that I answer all their questions and that I have a positive attitude. I especially enjoy seeing the smiles on visitors’ faces when they see our fabulous facilities, such as the art room, Sports Centre and the expedition department. I love speaking about our exciting expeditions programme and how much fun they will have when they’re on expedition.
Another one of my favourite parts of the tour is showing my house. Le Cerf has truthfully become a home for me, and the other girls have become my family. I want other students who are considering Aiglon to know that their boarding house won’t just be a place where they sleep: it will be a true home where they will not only make many friends but also many memories throughout the school years. I cannot express how fond I am of meeting new families and telling them what an amazing place Aiglon is – it is one of my most cherished passions. And I love recognising the new students who end up coming to Aiglon after one of my tours. This motivates me to work even harder and further improve myself. So, if you’re coming for a campus tour, be sure to ask for me as your guide!
