Testimonials

Helen Delgado, North Salinas High School, Salinas, California

“I attended Newsroom by the Bay 2015. I just wanted to thank you for a great experience and all the things I learned. I’m currently doing great in my yearbook class and I couldn’t help but to remember you guys. I couldn’t have done what I’m doing now without the skills I obtained in this program. Thank you!”

Helen Delgado, North Salinas High School, Salinas, California
Katie Leslie, Holy Spirit Preparatory School, Atlanta, Georgia

“I just wanted to say thank you for everything. I learned so much in one week about journalism and I can honestly say that I think I found my calling …

I will (hopefully) be back next year for Year 2. I already have tons of ideas!”

Katie Leslie, Holy Spirit Preparatory School, Atlanta, Georgia
Robin Paretz, parent, Boston

“We were so happy to find Newsroom by the Bay. Our son Ethan traveled from Boston to San Francisco to participate in the summer of 2013 and the program sealed his decision to become a journalist. With the knowledge he gained and the guidance of directors Paul and Beatrice, Ethan came home to his senior year motivated to apply to some of the nation’s top journalism schools.” 

Robin Paretz, parent, Boston
Teagan Sebba, Fort Collins High School, Fort Collins, Colorado

“Thank you so much for a Newsroom by the Bay experience that I will never forget! During my 10 days at Stanford, I learned so much about journalism, people and myself. I learned that the friends and connections you make now will impact your life forever, and I’m lucky to have made such great friends and connections at NBTB this year.”

Teagan Sebba, Fort Collins High School, Fort Collins, Colorado
Telmo DeMorais, St. Benedict’s Preparatory School, Newark

“On behalf of the other guys and myself, I’d like to thank you both for an amazing week. Personally, I can say that here, I’ve found many of the answers I’ve been looking for. Our website barely had any views, and I never knew why. Coming to NBTB and meeting people who were super-energetic and would always challenge my way of thinking about how journalism works today was amazing.”
