LifeLabs 12

Life Labs 12 is the BrainBoost version of Graduate Transitions, the pod that guides you through a successful transition to life after high school in the areas of personal health, community connections and career and life. Michaela invites you to participate in real talk about so many things, from our culture, your hopes about the future to dealing with your peers, from your school and community to drugs and sex, from race and class to money and mental health.

Grade 12 is a year full of choices, excitement and stress. Where are you going? What will you do after high school? What is your plan for the future? How will you be healthy and happy along the way? All these questions can leave your head spinning and give you the nagging feeling that you are running late. Good news: you know more than you think. Join Michaela to unlock the knowledge of yourself. Your values, skills, strengths and passions can be harnessed to answer these big questions. Practically, you will get to have a work experience and learn all about the financial musts of becoming independent. We will hear the stories of people who continue to walk the path of self-discovery and we will learn about keeping life in balance. After all, you can’t be late for your own life.


Your Teacher – Michaela McNeely

michaela mcneely portraitMichaela graduated from Quest University, where she explored public health and gender studies. She discovered her passion for sharing knowledge as a peer tutor at Quest, and has never looked back. Outside of school, Michaela also worked with individuals struggling with substance use and homelessness, and learned more than she ever imagined from the amazing people she met. She believes that she has just as much to learn from the students she’ll meet at BrainBoost. Michaela tutors a hodgepodge of subjects,but she’s always had a nerdy soft spot for math. She loves the instant gratification that comes from finally solving a challenging problem! Overall, she loves to see her students believe in themselves, and trust in their own abilities. When she’s not tutoring, you might find Michaela getting cozy in a nook with a nice cup of tea, smiling at strangers, or standing on her head.
