Jerry Yang

  • B.S., Finance, Math
  • Minor in Economics
  • University of Texas at Austin

Jerry is a student at the University of Texas at Austin studying finance, business honors, and math with a minor in economics. He loves rock climbing, listening to podcasts, playing volleyball, and singing collegiate A Cappella. For him, the thought of being a good steward to the environment came as an epiphany -- it wasn’t until he grew up and saw the worsening condition of societies and ecosystems that he broke his mindset that he couldn’t do anything. He realized that though the fire of change requires a lot of energy, all it may require is an individual spark.
