Jordan is a third-year majoring at the Woodrow Wilson School of International and Public Affairs. She is also pursuing the entrepreneurship certificate through the Keller Center. With the help of her professors and peers, she is exploring ways to merge her learnings about education policy and business for her senior thesis. Prior to starting at Princeton, she participated in the Freshman Scholars Institute, a seven-week summer program that allows a cohort of entering students the chance to experience the intellectual, co-curricular, and social life at Princeton. During her freshman fall, Jordan helped a fellow undergraduate start an educational non-profit organization, HomeWorks Trenton.
Initiated in Professor Marty Johnson’s EGR 498 class, HomeWorks Trenton is a startup dedicated to serving middle and high school girls by providing strong academic support, enriching community activities, and a stable home environment. HomeWorks is Trenton’s very first after-school boarding program. The organization’s mission is to foster a community of empowered young women who strive to achieve their full potential and positively impact the world around them. In 2017, Jordan spent her summer both serving as a residential college advisor at the Freshman Scholars Institute and creating a curriculum for the pilot program, HomeWorks Trenton Summer Scholars. As a sophomore, she assisted Prof. Johnson in his first freshman seminar, “So, You Want to Change the World?”, a course for developing social entrepreneurs. She worked closely with the students and edited the class’ report, “Strengthening Social Entrepreneurship on Campus: The Freshman Student Perspective”.
Outside of academics, she played for the women’s basketball team for two years, winning an Ivy League Championship and qualifying for the NCAA tournament in 2018. She is a member of the Cannon Dial Elm Club, Community Service Inter-club Council, and Princeton’s Association of Black Women. Passionate about giving back and mentorship, she serves as an RCA at her home of now three years, Forbes College. She can also be found welcoming patrons at the Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology. Jordan is a fellow in the Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT) Career Prep program. This summer, she will intern at Deloitte Consulting LLP’s Strategy & Operations practice in Rosslyn, Virginia. After college, she plans to pursue a career where she can work to improve school systems nationwide. She hopes to start her own boarding school and media company, both with a mission to better support the next generation’s youth. Although she has loved calling Princeton her home these past three years, Jordan is a proud native of Lawrenceville, Georgia.
