Testimonials

Zoe Howes, Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies, Tarzana, California

“”(T)his camp was one of the best things that I have done and been a part of. I created lifelong friends, learned so much about journalism, and I felt so happy being in this camp. Thank you so much for all of your love, support, understanding, open arms and hearts.”

Sammie Dostart-Meers, Menlo School, Atherton, California

“(NBTB) was really amazing …. I got to try a whole new form of journalism that I had never worked with and I learned so much! It was incredible to get to talk with (the) guest speakers. I loved the camp and am really excited for next year!”

Sammie Dostart-Meers, Menlo School, Atherton, California
Zadie Winthrop, The Urban School, San Francisco

“Before this camp, I did not have the resources or knowledge to know how I could even begin writing this story (on racial diversity in teaching) …. (Y)ou have allowed me to grow my love of reporting and have opened my eyes to so many more forms of journalism.”

Zadie Winthrop, The Urban School, San Francisco
Zachary Mora, Northgate High School, Walnut Creek, California

“Not only did I learn a lot but I was also impressed by how smoothly the program was run. I participated in camps before and this experience was by far the best. I look forward to sharing what I learned with my school newspaper staff.”

Zachary Mora, Northgate High School, Walnut Creek, California
Caryn Berman, parent, Monmouth Beach, New Jersey

“A tremendous thank you to your wonderful team for giving Zach (Berman) a phenomenal experience — one that he will never forget. He learned so much, made incredible connections and loved everything about your program.” 

Caryn Berman, parent, Monmouth Beach, New Jersey
Kaleb Reyes Clyde, Winslow High School, Winslow, Arizona

“NBTB opened my mind on journalism, my soon-to-be major. We went to San Francisco to do multiple stories and it was truly inspirational. I immediately knew that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.”

Kaleb Reyes Clyde, Winslow High School, Winslow, Arizona
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

“I can say that here (at Newsroom by the Bay), 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.”

Telmo DeMorais, St. Benedict’s Preparatory School, Newark
Joey Safchick, Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern University

“I went to NBTB with minimal journalism experience, just a deep passion for reporting and writing. (T)he incredible staff helped me hone in on my journalism skills and launch a digital news platform at my school …. I made long-lasting relationships with knowledgable and friendly teachers and leaders.”
