Jacob Miller

I am currently in my fourth year at the University of Ottawa studying International Studies & Modern Languages while also working part-time with Statistics Canada as a Student Analyst in the Labour Statistics Division. I am entering my fourth year as a member of the Rotaract Club of Ottawa. In 2013/2014 I took part in a Rotary Youth Exchange to Brazil.
