Antasia Polen Capstone
When I first began to think about my capstone project, editing/creating the yearbook wasn’t a thought, but when I came across the idea of it I knew it was something I had to do. During this process I collected photos from 9th-12th grade from our graduating class for all the different sections of the yearbook, had meetings to discuss upcoming deadlines, themes, categories, and formatting, and created Google forms for senior quotes, etc. Within this project, I learned more about myself and my creativity and being able to hold the responsibility of creating this yearbook for the class of 2023. Being able to help design this yearbook was an honor, to be a part of something people will never forget, and is something I’d do again. What I’d hoped to accomplish from this project was to create a memorable book for CO '2023, something heartwarming to have forever and be able to look back at in 10 years and reminisce. Now they’ll be able to take and carry these experiences and memories with them forever, which is a great thing to have, and also maintain a connection to the school and the SLA Beeber community after they graduate. Relevant information for someone trying to understand the Capstone process is you’re creating something or doing something that is beneficial not only to you but to the community and that’ll be memorable.
