Baker Web Academy Gives 17-Year-Old Breathing Space to Discover a Passion for Journalism
I heard about Baker as an awkward 17-year-old in the middle of an awkward move to Oregon in the middle of my junior year. Baker gave me a path to follow—and, more importantly, breathing space where I didn’t have to panic about getting into the perfect four-year program right away. Instead, I took my time and tried out a few things. I started writing for the Broadside and got hooked on journalism, something that changed the direction of my career and my life. I’m not sure if I would be working at the Seattle Times today if it weren’t for Baker.
