In the final weeks leading up to Graduation Day 2022, EAB will celebrate each of its Seniors via the Senior Spotlight. The High School Faculty is committed to making sure each member of the Class of 2022 knows how much they have meant to this school and how proud we are of them. Today, the Senior in the spotlight is Anna Carolinna Costa. Anna has been a proud member of the EAB Community since arriving on campus in 2020.
While at EAB, Anna Carolinna’s involvement with the art program has been a defining part of her time here. As a part of the IB Visual Arts program, she worked for two years developing a portfolio centered on the architecture of Brasilia. The exhibition of this work at Brasilia’s TV tower, which included the crowd-favorite model city made out of staples, was one of her favorite memories from her time at EAB. Anna Carolinna is proud of the time she’s devoted to improving her art skills and would also like to thank Ms. Fiona for her support. It’s not surprising that Anna Carolinna plans to go to architecture school next year in order to pursue a career in either architecture or interior design.
Anna Carolinna’s time at EAB was more than just her involvement with the arts. She is proud of how hard she worked to improve her writing skills along with her grade in English and would like to thank Ms. Corcoran as well. She is proud of overcoming her shyness, benefitting not only in an academic sense, but with the friends she’s made here. Some of her favorite memories are talking with her friends at lunch and the field trips she took with her classmates. She would like to thank her “girls friend group” for their time together, as well as her sisters and parents for the roles they have played in her life.
One of the things Anna Carolinna will miss most about EAB, along with seeing her friends everyday, is the “strong feeling of community [she] felt every time [she] walked into school.” Anna Carolinna was seamlessly a part of this welcoming community and will be remembered as “a really nice person, kind, gentle, and always willing to learn.” Multiple teachers mentioned her persistence and responsibility that led to her academic growth, but also kindness as a defining trait. She has become an important part of our community over these past few years and we will miss her!
