Allison did a video assignment titled “My Story” in Preserving Our Heritage Class in Social Studies. Students were asked to research their ancestors. According to his teacher at the time, Ms. Judith Gill, his video presentation about his family lineage boosted the standard of the class to the point where many of the students desired to enhance their project after viewing his assignment.

Allison stated: “I enjoy the ramp agent job for its dynamic pace and exhilarating atmosphere. I get to interact with commercial pilots, and foreign and Bermudian mechanics. I walk the wings of aircraft as they land and take off. The airport environment is stimulating, and there’s “never a dull day”! I love my job despite the long, physically demanding days I often work. I would highly recommend working in the aircraft service industry.”

Allison continues to have a strong interest in the fields of photography, video production, and media. He has maintained his technical prowess while concentrating on producing video and photographic assignments. He has succeeded in striking the “perfect balance” between his professional life and his artistic talents.
