After Serving Nearly 15 Years In Prison, Nyene Baker Is Helping Underserved Youth Learn Coding Through Music

Not everyone gets the opportunity for a second chance at life, so Nyene Baker isn’t taking his for granted. The Trenton, NJ, native’s previous path of being in the system began when he was arrested at age 10 and found himself on probation in the sixth grade. By high school, he started to sell drugs and get involved in other illegal activity. Baker’s behavior at the time resulted in his parents sending him to Liberia. However, when he returned to the U.S., he found himself back in a life of crime.
