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 Felipe Holguin. Felipe has been a proud Bull for the past four years.
Felipe has taken some time to reflect on his memories of EAB. His standout moment was a school trip to The Hague in the Netherlands for an MUN conference in 2019. Felipe comments: "This trip redefined my life and allowed me to build so many wonderful friendships and relationships with people around me. At this Korean BBQ restaurant in the Netherlands, while we ate with EAB's delegates and advisors from the other side of the world, I felt at home."
On leaving EAB Felipe will miss many people in the EAB community including his friends and teachers, saying "We are so lucky to have top-tier High School teachers with not just experience and expertise but wonderful personalities and commitment to our education. Our tech, maintenance, and security teams are also people I'll miss tremendously." When asked about his proudest moment at EAB Felipe shared that He is most proud of his growth as a person during his time at EAB saying "Through friends, peers, and teachers, I've transformed from the person I was in 8th grade into who I am today. Being able to change and improve who Felipe is has been a fantastic experience and my proudest achievement from EAB."
Felipe's teachers describe him as having a great sense of humor, being charismatic, and to possess critical thinking and argumentation skills that together will leave you impressed. He would like to take this opportunity to give thanks to some important people saying "I'd like to specifically thank my teachers and friends for making my High School years so enjoyable and enriching. I'm thanking teachers for always putting up with my stuff and helping me become a better learner overall. Thank you teachers for helping me materialize my passions and skills into a career path and for sparking my interest in subjects I never knew I'd enjoy. I'm also thanking my friends for being some of the most fantastic people I've ever met and for always supporting each other throughout our years here."
Felipe is very excited to study Economics and Business Economics at Rotterdam next year and EAB wishes him the best as he moves on to the next stage of his education.
