Amartya Singh

My name is Amartya Singh and I have seen the earth orbit the sun 15 times. I am currently living in Brazil but have also lived in India for 9 years. I play the guitar and taught myself to play the piano and the drums. I speak four languages and enjoy reading, listening to music and playing basketball in my free time. I have joined the newspaper club as an assistant to the communications director as I will assume the position the following year and I wish to learn how to perform this position well. 

Ana Helena Castro

Hey! I’m Ana and I’m a Junior. I love drawing, animation and Broadway musicals. Drawing is something I've been doing since forever and I absolutely love it. Recently I have become more open to share my opinions with other people, so I hope to contribute to the club with cool opinion articles about topics I like and maybe sprinkle some of my artwork for people to see.


And remember kids: reality is an illusion, the universe is a hologram. Buy gold!

Beatriz Brandão

Communications Director

Hi!! I’m Beatriz but you can call me Bia or Bibia (as Marcela does hahah). This is my second year at the school and I’m really happy to be part of the community. I’m currently a senior at EABH and I’m extremely excited about my last year here. The newspaper is a fun way for students to share their ideas, interests and develop their creativity. Personally, the Daily Hawk has helped me improve communication and media skills as well as to learn more about the EABH community. I’ll be happy to help you if you’re interested in joining the club! 

Beatriz Fonseca

Hi! My name is Beatriz, I have been in EABH for about one year now and am currently in ninth grade. I was born in Brasilia but moved to Belo Horizonte one year ago. I am extremely passionate about reading and writing and I believe that this club will help me in the further development of both of these skills. In my opinion, the newspaper serves as an influential and significant tool that assists many students in their self-expression and also consists of a source of inspiration, motivation, and knowledge concerning the school’s events. I’m very happy to be part of this group and can’t wait to contribute to the creation of The Daily Hawk!

Caio Kleinpaul--

Deputy Writing Director

Hello! I am Caio Kleinpaul and I am very shy; this means that it is very hard to write about myself but I hope that the newspaper helps me with this. I love general knowledge and culture (especially German), cars, food, music and so on… I intend to write opinion articles about politics,culture, travel, gastronomy and even maybe write poems. I also have strong opinions and hope to transmit them through the Daily Hawk, convincing my readers about it and preferentially making it somehow funny.

Daniel Souza

Hi, my name is Daniel Rodrigues de Souza, 17, and I’m a senior. The reason I decided to join The Daily Hawk is because I wanted to be more engaged with the community and be a part of the school’s environment in as many ways as possible, and one of these opportunities appeared as joining this club. I think that my biggest contribution to it will be with sports pieces, as I’m part of SALC -The Student Athletic Leadership Committee-, leading me to always be very active in the Hawks’ community, allowing me to have easy access to different information and updates about it.

Philippine Dejean

Hello! My name is Philippine and I am a 6th grader. I am French and I have been in EABH for two years now. I really like to cook, draw, and read. I think that reading helps me understand new things and it helps me learn new vocabulary. Cooking helps me with my math because I need to measure a lot of things. Drawing helps me to express myself. Before living in Brazil I lived in Belgium, in Italy, and in India. I visited a few places like the Philippines, Egypt, New York, and Germany. I think that the newspaper will help me to understand a lot of things by allowing me to study a lot of topics and, lastly,  it is going to help me get to know new people.

Valentina Ballesteros 

“She is not afraid to speak her mind, whether it be through her art, poetry, acting, or just simply: by saying it." - Marcela Ortiz


I honestly think that that phrase does not only describe my IB profile, which is (if you haven’t guessed) communicator, but it also describes almost all of my hobbies and, of course, my personality. I’m going to be responsible for the poetry section that’s on the journal. If you do read it, while you are doing so , I truly hope it makes you guys feel as good, as relieved, a as represented as I feel writing them.

Zeinner de Paula

Hello ladies and gents. My name is Zeinner, but people call me Zeinner. I am an artist by heart and a science enthusiast. I combine these two worlds with paleoart, which is the scientific illustration of prehistoric life (aka: I draw cool dinos n stuff). I am very fascinated by the mysterious and want to bring this awe to the world. I also greatly enjoy fantasy and speculative biology, eventually delving into SCP files, alien life, designing entire fictional worlds, cryptozoology. I am also a D&D player, from which my series of short stories “Son of Aurum” originated.
