Majoring in business with an emphasis in marketing, Richard boasts a cumulative 3.4 GPA and plans to pursue his master’s degree once he graduates.

The Capra family experienced a tremendous and unexpected loss two years ago. Tailwinds of Hope wishes the best to Richard as his hard work and ambition for success leads him to his dream career.
A motto the Capra family reminds themselves often is.…“Let your hope not your hurt shape your future”.
