Jordan Richards

Student at Miami University majoring in Finance
With many experiences, I make the most out of opportunities and make decisions accompanied by biblical guidance. I am a trained leader and a strong follower because I want to learn. My service to the U.S. Army has taught me how to be extremely disciplined and think smarter about my actions. The experience I gained as a server at Frisch's allows me to give outstanding customer service. I am physically, mentally, and spiritually strong and I exemplify values of integrity, loyalty, and honor. Through God's love, I am humble and modest in what I do. I chose to continue my education through business school because I enjoy being in service to you, meeting new people, strategic planning, investing, marketing, logical thinking, taking initiative, administration, collaborating with others, and punctually getting projects done.
