Thinking It Through:
Joe Amditis

Q: Aside from using Hearken, what are some of the ways and methods you plan to use to reach out to your community to identify their needs?

A: My community is vocal online and gets a lot of coverage but little of it identifies needs. There’s also a go-to need that arises: forgiving students loans en masse. Maybe it is because that is the only real solution to their problems but, in my online interactions, I’m looking for how small changes can make significant positive impact in student debtor’s daily lives.

Q: How might you incorporate design thinking into your daily lives, outside of school or your careers?

A: I’m actually completely stumped by this question.
