Senior Spotlight: JP Nardes

In the final weeks leading up to Graduation Day 2021, 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 2021 knows how much they have meant to this school and how proud we are of them. Today, the Senior in the spotlight is JP Nardes. JP has been a proud member of the EAB Community since before his "mother gave birth, he was writing CAS reflections on Womb Activities." 

In his many years at EAB, his seventh grade trip to the Amazon was his most memorable event. He recalled the brutal murder of a two-foot long spider that was in his bathroom on his first night there. He will miss the days that he got to watch movies in class, and he recognizes that this is not likely to happen when he goes to college… unless he studies film. He is most proud of the short film that he made with Mr. Sweetman and Mr. Jones. Although it was not his best work, he found it a fun and rewarding project. JP would like to thank the maintenance team and janitors for making EAB so clean and organized. He notes their daily heartfelt greetings and friendly nods as one way that EAB feels like home.

Growth is a major characteristic of JP's time at EAB. One teacher noted, "Much has changed in six years. From being clueless to where his missing shoe might be to meticulously focused and impressive in his film/graphic design work, JP could be the poster child for extreme teenage development." JP's added maturity is also evident in one teacher's comment, "Our film conversations in the past two years have often felt more like colleagues than teacher/student," with another teacher noting, "One of my favorite students to teach—and then after teaching him, one of my favorite students to chat with in the hallway. He's one of a kind, never afraid to be different, and incredibly creative.

After EAB, JP intends to do something big, something grand. He has an issue of pursuing something that doesn't have impact or grandiosity. Whereas some might find fault with this line of thought, he sees this as dreaming above and beyond. He feels that this is necessary. We are all looking forward to JP's great cinematic and Tik Tok productions in the future.

Senior Spotlight 2021
Senior Spotlight: JV Barros
May 6, 2021
Being part of the EAB Family has brought JV many memories that he will cherish forever. Certainly, the moments when he was simply hanging out with his friends and also his teachers are the moments that he will hold the closest to his heart. Those moments with friends and teachers are the moments João will miss the most about being at EAB.
Senior Spotlight: Joao Cabrera
May 5, 2021
Joao has been a very felt presence at EAB for many years. His positive attitude, strong sense of humor and fun loving attitude has added much needed life into classrooms and zoom calls. His teachers routinely comment on his fun loving personality, openness, and his natural ability to make people laugh.
Senior Spotlight: Ana Weiss
May 4, 2021
Although Ana was new to EAB as a Junior, she fit right into the school, quickly making lots of excellent friendships. She will always remember spending time "in the Chemistry lab during lunch, just talking and having a good time". Sometimes, though, there would be some "last minute studying for a test" with friends.
Senior Spotlight: Gabrielle Pedrosa
May 3, 2021
Gabrielle has many happy memories from her time at EAB; she recalls every memory as "special because everyday was completely different". She thinks that the small classes, intensity of the relationships and "the fact that most people grew up together" means that the emotions and memories she will carry with her will be powerful. Her particular favourite memories are of her friends: the twitter dramas; the TikToks; the trips and the post Carnaval weekend fun, hanging out with her close friends at Morro da Asa Delta as the sun rose over the lake.
Senior Spotlight: Tomas de Athayde
April 30, 2021
Tomás has consistently impressed his teachers and peers with the breadth and depth of his knowledge. This was always evident in class discussions. It was also on display during his many speeches during MUN conferences. Indeed, his favourite memory is winning "the Best Delegate award while attending BSBMUN". He recalls the "whole conference (as) memorable" but the award was what clinched this as his "favourite memory at EAB". Anyone who witnessed him in action during that conference will also remember it well.
