Miles Jackson

By studying Economics at Pacific University, I aim to help drive the world in the right direction. Social justice, environmental sustainability, and the development of a world with entirely new sources of energy, are all problems I intend to tackle on my journey.

I find financial systems fascinating and hope that, throughout my experience as an undergraduate, I am able to immerse myself in environments that allow me to better understand the inner and outer workings of the macro/micro economy. I want to be a part of improving the world through a socio-economic lens.

I have an interest in Venture Capitalism as a means to inspire the change I wish to create in the world; however, this interest does not limit the scope to which my curiosity extends. I am currently searching for jobs that will allow me to work with other individuals who are just as passionate about the future as me!
