It was his time in Australia that shaped his view on people and the world around it, believing that all people are connected and that the only way to help the world was to help people. It was there that he realized his goal in life to serve the greater good. Upon return to the United States, Richard turned his goals to becoming a lawyer. Immediately after graduation, Mr. Cooper enrolled in Nova’s Shepard Broad Law Center where he was an active and ever excelling student in both academics and extracurricular associations.
