It’s Our Third Anniversary!

The Bailiwick Academy is turning another year old! It’s going to be our third anniversary on January 17! It is amazing how a vision by a dreamer is now a thriving community of thousands!  And guess what? We will be celebrating The Bailiwick Academy’s third anniversary with a very loud bang!

However, before the success, did you know that this vision of Ms. Marie Grace Parazo stemmed out from the need to have more quality time with her daughter?  With an untimely circumstance involving family, she resigned from her high-paying BPO job and dedicated her time to family most especially her daughter.  

Ms. Grace And Her Dream

Ms. Grace, as she is fondly called by the community,  juggled life with helping her husband by selling baked goods, exclusively breastfeeding their daughter and attended workshops to better her craft.  It was the transit from home to workshops and back that exhausted her.  Manila is notoriously known for its traffic. I am sure most of you can relate to the exhaustion it brings when you’re stuck in traffic for 2-4 hours!

So, she tried learning from free recipes and tutorials on YouTube and Google. It didn’t quite suit her as it was still trial and error. A lot of ingredients were wasted and there were so many recipes of one dish on the internet that it was too overwhelming.  She didn’t know what or who to follow anymore.

She tried enrolling in paid workshops based abroad.  Ms. Grace learned some new techniques but it wasn’t the right fit.  The methods and ingredients were not adaptable to a tropical country like ours.

Ms. Grace also noticed that some students attending the workshops would come from the provinces or from abroad.  She thought, what if there is a more convenient way to learn?

You can’t get back the time you wasted in traffic, time away from the family or your loved ones and not to mention the preparation and hassle that you have to go through in arranging your schedule just to attend a class.

The idea is for everyone to get as much time doing what they want or what they need anywhere!

Imagine going through a workshop at home then your child calls out for you. You just pause the class and come back anytime you are ready!

No more going through traffic and wasting 2 hrs or more! You will still learn while being where you are needed to be! “

Marie Grace Parazo

With this thought, she founded The Bailiwick Academy from the ground up with practically just her and her husband Mr. Nico Parazo.  And the rest, they say, is history!
