From the moment the two collide in person, he seems to have his eye on Hazel…

Miguel

Major: MA Design
Confident as a lion, Miguel wants to make social change with his own brand and get the world to HEAR his message for empowering animals. While he has come to the Institute to perfect his craft, he has some problems with getting people to listen… and with keeping his work from lighting on fire.
