Michael Sanchez, a third-year Plan II major, pursues the study of Design Strategies with UT’s new School of Design and Creative Technologies. He brings the design principles he learns to his other work, from analyzing the Cybersyn command room of 1970s Chile to developing communications strategy for Apricity Magazine. Michael attended a lecture his freshman year that let him see the importance of citizen journalism. Since then, he’s realized the ethical questions journalists consider also should be considered by everyone using social media. He looks forward to researching the ethics of social media and other topics for the Media Ethics Initiative this semester.
