I don’t know about you, but when I was 17 years old, I was busy racing old Chevys and publishing a subversive humor magazine that nearly got me expelled from school. Fortunately, the world also is populated with productive teenagers like Denisha Kuhlor.
We’re excited to be working with Denisha, a senior at the Academy of Aerospace & Engineering in Hartford, during this school year. Denisha is undertaking a capstone project for graduation that includes creating a website from scratch, and she is working with ZAG’s Director of Marketing, Michelle Brown, and other key ZAG team members to gain a better understanding of a multi-faceted website build. Denisha is delving into strategic planning, design, development and marketing to learn how to create her own website, which she will present on multiple occasions once the site launches later in the school year.
As is the case with accomplished high school students, Denisha has a lot more going on than just her capstone project and senior year classes. She serves as her academy’s president and she actively blogs for the Huffington Post teen section, among various other activities. Denisha plans to study marketing and business in college, and her mentorship at ZAG will expose her to the real-world application of business concepts and technological expertise.
ZAG is proud to have the opportunity to extend education beyond the traditional classroom setting to benefit students like Denisha. If you’re interested in discussing additional mentoring opportunities, please contact ZAG at 860.633.4818.
