Jenna Baer was born and thrives in Houston, Texas. She has been a prolific writer since she learned how to pick up a pencil, crafting fantastical stories for her friends and family. She became especially passionate about writing after the strong encouragement from her English teacher, Erica Harris, at Carnegie Vanguard High School. She is currently pursuing a degree in English & creative writing and a minor in journalism at George Washington University. She has been an opinions writer and cartoonist for The GW Hatchet for two years. She is also the head writer of her school’s only sketch comedy TV-show and will always try to squeeze a punchline into an article if her editor will let her get away with it.
