Focused. The mindset that allows Cooper to thrive, not only in the classroom but also in his community, through his extracurricular activities and part time job. Cooper is a goal driven individual. Once he attains a goal he immediately reaches for a new one. He believes in life you must know where you are going. For Cooper, you can never dream too big, but there’s no point to dreaming big if the ambition isn’t there. Cooper devotes his time to boys’ lacrosse, National Honor Society, Future Business Leaders of America, and h.o.p.e. (helping other people endure) club.
Working at Knollwood Country Club has enhanced his conversational skills, which he continues to develop through Startup Moxie. Respect is a characteristic he looks for in others, as he continues to strengthen it in himself. Cooper feels his Catholic school education has shaped him to become the respectful young man that he is today. Through Startup Moxie, Cooper is hoping to build connections, attain real world experiences, and acquire lifelong skills that cannot be taught in the classroom. Cooper would like to pursue a career in investment banking and eventually become a business owner. Cooper hopes to give back to his community by inspiring future generations just as other have done for him.
