I chose this word because "brainpower" means more than just being "book smart". Brainpower means having the ability to use one's knowledge to make a difference in the world, whether that means helping a friend in need or literally changing the world. To me, brainpower doesn't just involve smarts, its a combination of strength, intelligence, endurance, and all of the above. Brainpower is the power to inspire change.
