Godfrey's life behind the lens

Our CSY intern enjoys recording and sharing our stories.

2016 graduate and Community Service Year intern Godfrey has been working with the Marketing and Photography teams here at St Jude’s for the last two months. The talented 21-year-old has been hard at work, helping on a range of projects and improving his skills.  

Godfrey’s most recent piece of work is a short video that shares the day in the life of our boarding students. 

“I like videos,” he said.

“I like the way I can tell a story through photos and videos. They are a way of expressing feelings in the modern world, they allow us to share stories about the past, the present and look into the future.

“My favourite part of the Community Service Year has been learning new skills with videos and editing and getting the chance to take photos and film videos.

“I enjoyed doing that in A levels (Form 5 and 6) very much. Now that I get the chance to do it full-time, I feel very blessed and very privileged to do what I enjoy.” 

Godfrey has big plans for the future.

“I had thought of studying engineering but know I have fallen in love with graphic design and photography and videography,” he said.

“I think now I will go for a course that includes graphic design, photography and videography to keep developing my skills.” 

With work like this video it’s not hard to see why. Keep an eye on our social media for more of Godfrey's work!
