"Mooi, inspirerend en overtuigend

De deelnemers zijn enthousiast. ‘Mooi’, ‘inspirerend’ en ‘overtuigend’ vinden ze Marino’s presentatie. Van die waardering kan Marino zelf ook genieten. “Ik heb een geweldige dag”, zegt hij lachend. “Ik geniet van het enthousiasme van de deelnemers. Ik voel ook dat ik verschil maak.” Is dat waarom hij telkens terugkomt?  Maar Jay Marino heeft een ‘hoger doel’. “Ik wil een grotere impact op kinderen hebben; een impact die mijn eigen schooldistrict overstijgt. Ik wil van betekenis zijn voor heel Nederland door scholen te helpen hun potentieel te benutten. Dat is weer van invloed op de kinderen en daar gaat het om voor mij.”
