She is especially interested in the intersections among communication, human rights, social justice, and mental health awareness. When she’s not studying for her courses, Sabrina serves as the Social Media Publicity Officer for “Campus Events + Entertainment” and is working toward her certification as a conflict mediator. She also enjoys going to theater, dance, and comedy performances around Austin.
Media Ethics Initiative Citizen Scholars are part of the Intellectual Entrepreneurship Pre-Graduate School Internship program at the University of Texas at Austin. This internship is open to students in all UT colleges, schools, and departments. Citizen Scholars earn credits and valuable experience by working with the Media Ethics Initiative to promote reflection on media ethics among students and faculty at the University of Texas at Austin. They gain valuable experience by assisting the organizing and promotion of Media Ethics Initiative events, as well as by researching and writing case studies in media ethics. Interested UT Austin students can sign up for a 1, 2, or 3 credit internship for the fall or spring semester. For more information on the Media Ethics Initiative Citizen Scholar program, visit here.
