Well, Eitan was in fact one of the first people to befriend me when I came last year to the States! I moved from Norway to go to CRLS for a year and in my first class of the semester, AP calc class, I had no friends what so ever. Eitan was the first to talk to me, and I remember I thought to myself: "wow, people here are really nice! And really funny! I'll actually get through this." I also remember that I thought he seemed very intelligent because he had these great plans for the future, and asked me loads of questions about Norway -- a small country not too many before him even knew where it was!
Eitan made me laugh and relax in a time when I was really nervous that first day. He was such an amazing person who was really easy to talk to. I never saw him with a sad face and whenever I talked to him I always had to laugh because he was so naturally funny. He was always his relaxed self, and I really, really wished I had stayed on in that class so we could have gotten much closer.
