Name: Matthew Sabloff
Major: Graphic Design
I am a 3rd Graphic Design major, originally from Montreal. I moved to Toronto from Montreal as a stepping stone towards gaining new experiences, wether it be professional or social. The Design Abroad program to India is the ultimate opportunity to experience a culture that I am deeply interested in while exercising my skills in design.
I have not yet had the opportunity to approach graphic design, or design as a whole, as a problem solving activity which could ultimately provide social impact. Travelling to India to participate in this program will not only impact the communities that I hope to come to experience and be a part of, but it will influence change in myself. I truly have a passion for my field and for travel; this trip will give me the ability to experience both on a social and ethical level that I could not achieve on my own accord.
