Senior Spotlight: Yordan Janssen

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 Yordan Janssen.

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”. It is this last reference, so typical of Yordan in his care and concern for others, which makes him who he is.  He says that he will most miss “being with his friends” at EAB, together with athletics and the games which have had to be cancelled, a great way of “taking my mind off other worries.” Indeed, he is most proud of being able to balance the “academic rigor and challenges of my classes” with his “numerous athletic activities.”

His teachers all agree that Yordan is academically gifted, one teacher alluding to his “immense intelligence and kindness.” The same teacher goes on to say how Yordan “makes the world a better place” and knows he will continue to do so because “whatever path in life he takes it will always be a path with heart.” His science teacher reserves special praise for him, "his mind moving with purpose, a skill that is rare to find in a student of school age", hoping that a "little bit of the light that radiates from him lingers in the lab to warm the minds of the students that follow." 

Yordan would most like to thank the teams he has been involved in, basketball and volleyball as, despite a season dogged by injury, “you guys always motivated me to keep going”, the team looking for ways “in which I could contribute without being on the court.”

We all at EAB will miss your great contributions on and off the court, Yordan, and know that your great passion for learning will continue well beyond the school. We are very proud of you and all you have achieved!

Senior Spotlight 2020
Senior Spotlight: Marina Covre
May 29, 2020
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.

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."
