IDCE Students Profiles

Michelle Miller (IDSC '2011)

Michelle Miller (USA) received her B.A. in political science and international studies from Iowa State University with a minor in economics and German. While her interest in international affairs has been growing since she was young, it was during her experience working as an intern in Washington, D.C. that she realized that the disparity of wealth in our country and in the world is a grave problem we must address. Miller’s interests have become increasingly focusing on economic development, she believes is one of the main causes and potential solutions to poverty and inequality. Her enthusiasm for creating change led her to study at the University of Ghana in Legon, where she narrowed her interests further in desiring to address the problem of modern-day slavery.
