Senior Spotlight: Tomas de Athayde

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 Tomás de Athayde. Tomás has been a proud member of the EAB Community for a total of three years. 

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. 

Throughout his career at EAB, it was his participation in MUN that gave him the greatest feeling of pride. He is particularly proud of having earned a place on the leadership team, which he describes as a "privilege". Ms Gracinha is "grateful for (his) contribution as a leader and member of MUN"; she also wishes him the best "in his future particularly is (he) is going to follow diplomacy" which she considers "so necessary in our days". 

Tomás will miss the comfortable EAB atmosphere, which he found as he studied at EAB. His teachers will miss "his strong personality" and believe his resilience will "take him far in the future". 

He would like to thank his parents for the "support and love" they have offered his "entire life". He would also like to thank his "teachers for dedicating themselves" to teaching him and his peers. Tomás would like to offer his thanks to his Flex Leader, Ms Corcoran, "for all the help" she has given him over the two years they worked together. 

EAB would like to thank Tomás for elevating the intellectual debate among his peers, for his honesty and for his commitment to MUN. We are sure that wherever life takes him, be that Dartmouth, Edinburgh or the United Nations, Tomás will thrive. 

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.
