WESTFORD — WestfordCAT is delighted to spotlight four Westford Academy Capstone students who are working with staff until graduation in June.
Rachel Dodos has spent her final month at Westford Academy on her capstone project, where she has mentored three other capstone students on their marketing projects.
“We’ve been working with advertising, so we’ve been doing stuff with clients [like Sweepnman and Bamboo],” she told WestfordCAT. “We’ve made commercials and took photos for them to put on display.”
She continued, “it also has a lot to do with the other students learning the equipment and feeling comfortable using the cameras.”
Dodos will attend Emerson College with a major in Media Arts Production.
“I really want to expand my knowledge of filmmaking and advertising. I used to want to go into Hollywood and things like that but I discovered I want to work with commercials,” she said.
Dodos, who has been with WestfordCAT since 2020, noted a number of skills she learned from WestfordCAT that she will use through college and beyond.
“I’ve learned how to operate different equipment in the studio,” she said. “But I’ve also learned how to talk to people. I used to be very shy, but I’ve learned a lot of leadership skills during our camps because I have to teach them, lead them and organize the event.”
She continued, “It’s very sad [to leave]. I really enjoyed my time here. Everyone has been great.”
From all of us here at WestfordCAT, we would like to thank Rachel for her hard work and tenacity throughout her time at WestfordCAT. We know you will succeed wherever you go and we look forward to what your future holds.
