Olga Kyan graduated from North Broward Preparatory School with a 5.16 GPA and is was admitted to Harvard. Part of what made her a standout student was having several articles published for the Harvard Economics Review. Olga was also Editor-in-Chief of Brainwash, North Broward’s student-run online publication, and her involvement in clubs and organisations such as the Ronald McDonald House Club, the National Honor Society and the National Honor Society for Dance Arts.
To students who are dreaming of attending an Ivy League school, Olga believes they should showcase their individual passions while at school instead of simply trying to overload their schedule with clubs and activities that they think universities want to see.
Outside of school, Olga remains deeply involved with ballroom dancing, her main passion. She has been ballroom dancing since she was just 10 years old and even won national titles at the Youth American Smooth Championship in 2016 and 2017.
