Jackson ’05

Jackson published his first professional article when interning at Pulse Magazine at Dynamy. He went on to Vassar College and held numerous media internships.

“Taking a year off before going to college so that I could get some real world experience was one of the best decisions that I made after graduating high school.

The Dynamy program gave me the knowledge that I needed to excel in a world outside of the Ivory Tower. You always need to take a first step in that direction, why not take it sooner rather than later?

Plus, the program was structured such that in addition to getting opportunities to put my nose to the grindstone in the work force, I got to actually reflect on what I wanted to do and — more importantly — on who I wanted to be. You need to slow down before you can speed up.”
