A juvenile offender becomes a social worker
That’s what a person called Amber Wederski when she was 10 years old sitting at the bus stop. It’s the moment, Wederski said, that made her feel like she was different — the “bad seed” other kids were not allowed to see. She was “going nowhere fast.”
“I had teachers, I had guidance counselors, who didn’t believe in me,” she said. “They treated me different, so I always felt like I was different.”
Fourteen years later, Wederski is on track to graduating from Warner Pacific College with a bachelor’s degree in human development.
