What It Means to These Students...
Kendra Baker, Sophomore
Major: English & Communications
“I understand the importance of caring for others and making meaningful connections. I value the connections I have made with the Western and Bellingham communities and hope to maintain these throughout my life. I strive to continue the values my mother has taught me. Good listening and caring for others are essential in all aspects of my life.”
Ray Garcia, Senior
Major: News/Editorial Journalism
Minor: Writing Studies
“I am most inspired by the human experiences that I encounter as a journalist. Being a student in the journalism department has shown me the power and influence behind another person’s story. It’s an extraordinary feeling when a source trusts me to represent who they are and what matters to them.”
