Jean-Christian Meiller’s potential in his academic work plays just a partial role in the overall passion he carries as a young student. With a drive for learning, sharpness of intellect and ability to lead, he has exceeded expectations across his professional development process.

Throughout the community, Meiller has participated in several projects, including being the kickboxing coach and president of Combat Sports Club, which he took over and brought back from being shut down. There, he has led both the executive board and boxing team to success, and has gained leadership and team-building experience. Meiller also is a member of the honors accounting organization Beta Alpha Psi.

With an overall grade-point average of 3.83 as an accounting student, Meiller has been granted several scholarships, including the National Association of Industry and Parks Award, USF Scholars Award and Florida Bright Futures. His ability to comprehend what enhancements can be made and act upon them landed him the position as the marketing chairman for USF’s Globull Ambassador Program. Since his freshman year, Meiller has volunteered for Junior Achievement, where he’s taught first and second graders about business and how it affects them on a personal and a community level.

Working as an accounting intern at the Orlando Utilities Commission, as well as being an administrative assistant/social media marketer at the Learning Center of Dr. Phillips, has shown him a career path he envisions for himself, which is to begin in public accounting and eventually become a forensic accountant for the FBI.
