Senior Spotlight: Marina Covre

In the final weeks leading up to Graduation Day 2020, EAB will celebrate each of its Seniors via the Senior Spotlight.  Though many of the Senior Traditions cannot happen this year, the High School Faculty is committed to making sure each member of the Class of 2020 knows how much they have meant to this school and how proud we are of them.  Today, the Senior in the spotlight is Marina Covre. 

Marina has been a proud member of the EAB Community since arriving on campus in grade 11.  Although she has only been at EAB for two years, Marina has had a profound impact on the EAB community.  She developed and executed the Yellow September project, and her favorite memory is "seeing how both students and staff collaborated" on this, resulting in "a great experience".  Marina is most proud of her strength, as she moved to Brasilia alone to pursue her education at EAB.  In doing this, she was able to address issues with social anxiety and make a lot of new friends.  She is also "really proud of the Yellow September Project and how important it was not only for me, but for the school."  Marina will most miss seeing her friends daily, talking to her teachers, and enjoying her senior year.  Marina would like to thank her parents "for giving up so much so that I could study in a better school," her brothers who "missed her back home," and her friends from her hometown.  She would also like to thank her support system on campus, including Ms. Gracinha, Ms. Vivian, Ms. Prince, and Ms. Andrea, for "teaching me the importance of having strong women representing our needs and opinions on campus."

Academically, Marina's teachers commented on her hard work and her determination in the classroom, with her economics teacher stating, "I can't say enough how much you impressed me this year.  You stepped up and your performance was through the roof...It's clear how much work you put in, how independent, proactive, and responsible you are."  Her BSS teacher noted, "Marina impressed me since the first time in class.  Knowledgeable, fast thinker."  More importantly than academics, however, is Marina's sense of justice and her willingness to speak out.  Her Portugues teacher noted, "It is her character that impresses me the most.  Besides her great spirit and beautiful soul, I will always remember and be proud of her courage to express feelings and powerful ideas.  She uses her voice to advocate for the underdog, and she does that wisely."  Her BSS teacher echoed these sentiments, noting, "Kind, helpful, pleasant, and most important, a beautiful human being.  Someone that will make a difference." 

As she leaves EAB, Marina plans to move further from home and attend the University of Edinburgh to study international relations and to continue making fun memories.  Her Portuguese teacher noted, "I am sure she's ready to make a positive impact in our world."  We at EAB wish her the best of luck and can't wait to see how Marina impacts the world!

Huat has been a proud member of the EAB Community since arriving on campus in tenth grade. In his time at EAB, Huat has many good memories, his favorite of which was "a time where my physics friends and I got trapped in the physics room because the door handle broke. We felt like zoo animals as teachers and students alike took turns looking in through the tiny window on the door."

Senior Spotlight: Yordan Janssen
May 29, 2020
Yordan joined the school in his junior year and since that time, despite the academic demands made of him during the IB program, he has actively involved himself in the wider life of the school community. He cites as his most memorable moment “the ambiance of last year’s IB exams” because, as a junior, he could spend time with friends, with the dogs on campus (to help with exam stress), as well as “help support the seniors through their challenging time”.
Senior Spotlight: Duda Bulhoes
May 29, 2020
Duda has been a proud and dedicated member of the EAB Community since arriving on campus as a four year old. She has been part of campus life with the Seniors her entire life; she feels she will miss EAB "because she was in a place she could find comfort when she needed" with "friends or a teacher". At EAB, Duda always "had someone she talk to whenever she felt stressed or overwhelmed". She is proudest of her evolution in the IB Arts program" because "it really helped her express her emotions" as well as helping her "open up about her feelings and improve as a person".
Senior Spotlight: Flavio Hoff Britto Dias
May 29, 2020
Flavio has been a dedicated member of the EAB Community since arriving on campus in tenth grade. His trademark assembly scream showed his commitment to the EAB team! Flavio feels great pride that he now "understands what he wants to do with his life" when he leaves EAB. Flavio's favourite memories all happened in Ms Luciana's Portuguese classes in Senior year.
