Ally Zhao’s Arctic Expedition

By Brain Power in Newsletter

November 1st, 2018

In late spring, we announced that Brain Power student Ally Zhao was selected as 1 of only 120 high school students to take part in the prestigious Arctic Expedition 2018. In addition to this remarkable achievement, Ally also won a $5000 scholarship from the organization to support her attendance.

Brain Power is proud to have supported Ally’s application and her GoFundMe campaign.

Ally has just returned from this incredible experience and she blogged throughout her journey about Brain Power and Brain Power’s Founder and Director, Dr. Karine Rashkovsky.

Here’s short piece from one of Ally’s blog posts:

“Now, as tenth grade is coming in a few weeks, and with my whole future in front of me, I will definitely use what I have learned during these two weeks on expedition to help guide me through my life, and try to make an impact on those around me. I also want to say thank you to Students on Ice, the Robert Schad Foundation, my friends and family, Karine Rashkovsky and her amazing team at Brain Power Enrichment Programs, and to everybody else who has helped support me through this journey. I would never have been able to take such a big stride in my life without you.”

We are so proud of you, Ally!
