December 23, 2013 - 10:21am Dear Family and Friends, My name is Mohammad Sayed. Some of my homework over the Thanksgiving break was to thank and be thankful to kind people like all of you, and to share our stories.

About two years ago I could not believe what I read on the Mayor's Summer Youth Employment application. There was a quick description and explanation of CCTV. I rushed to my mom in the kitchen and showed her the description. I said, "Really, this is a place where I can use professional cameras and get training from adult experts."

Everybody here was given an opportunity to further their depth as a person, an experience many could not have received otherwise. I got the chance to develop my understanding of camerawork and express myself through film at CCTV." read more
