Allison joined the Youth Media Program over two years ago, in 2016. Now a senior at Cambridge Rindge and Latin, Allison has stepped into a Media Mentor position. She is working with other returning students to launch a youth-driven news outlet, and is also assisting new Youth Media Program participants as they create their first media projects. Allison spoke of her future goals:

"I plan on attending college in the fall of 2019 I want to pursue a career path in media production. CCTV has prepared me for a career in media production by teaching me how to plan, shoot, and produce films and has also prepared me for working by teaching me leadership, teamwork, and communication skills."
