Thoughts on Brain Power: Through Brain Power, I became more confident in myself and in my work. The open environment and positive attitudes gave me the courage to try new things and challenge myself. Brain Power enhanced my confidence and taught me how to think outside the box and come up with new ideas that help me stand out. I learned many valuable lessons that not only helped me in school but also in life.
