Michael Lozano developed a passion for social justice through Dr. Nielan Barnes, who explained complex social issues in a logical and compelling way and exposed him to macro social concerns. His goal is to accomplish the same for others through journalism articles on topics ranging from education to immigration. In his current position as a beat reporter at VoiceWaves, Michael accomplishes his goal through articles and videos, while focusing on social subjects and concerns like immigration, undocumented immigrants, education, post-traumatic stress disorder, healthcare, and trauma. Prior to this opportunity, Michael spent six months as a research intern for the Orange County Child Support Services, which gave him the experience and initiative to begin his own radio show, Biographic Voices. Michael had the amazing opportunity to present one of his VoiceWave videos at the Latino Film Festival. Michael shared that, “I feel incredibly blessed to write stories about real people in a diverse city, giving a voice to those who have yet to find theirs”.
