Justin Cates is a 22 year old student from Atlanta, Georgia and is currently participating in SIT’s Field Studies, Journalism, and New Media program in Morocco. He attends Brandeis University, and will be completing his final semester when he returns. He created a major in Critical Theory and Media Studies with a minor in African-American Studies. Morocco was not his first choice, but says it has quickly become one of the greatest experiences of his life. He is pursuing a career in television, but remains open to any new experiences or opportunities that may come his way. He looks forward to increasing his writing skills while in Morocco, and learning more about the culture, Islam (the predominate faith), and differing approaches to the media industry.
