Meet the winner of our “Best Summer Ever” Scholarship!

We’re delighted to announce the winner of our “Best Summer Ever” Scholarship: Anisa Siddikova.
Anisa truly exemplifies grit and determination. She moved to the U.S. from Tajikistan when she was 9 years old, after being separated from her mom for years. They were finally reunited, but some things were still hard. Anisa didn’t speak any English at first, so school was extremely challenging and her grades suffered. But she worked hard, improved her grades, and discovered both a passion and a unique talent for microbiology. Anisa has just started 9th grade at Leon M. Goldstein High School for the Sciences in Brooklyn, NY. After school and on weekends, she’s getting valuable lab experience by studying alongside a microbiology professor at Long Island University. Anisa dreams of getting a medical degree and then working for the CDC, curing infectious diseases.
We’re excited to introduce this exceptional young woman, and honored to help her reach her dreams.
Meet Anisa by checking out her short video, above!
