GERI MARIANO, INSPIRATIONAL SPEAKER > NOTES FROM KIDS > ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS

 
 

"Geri is a very generous, loving, intelligent girl. She is the most optimistic person I've ever met. Even though she has disabilities and can't do a lot of the stuff we can do, she looks at not what she can't do, but focuses on what she can. Geri tries to make the most of life and thinks of many creative ideas to help her get along well. Geri also loves kids and has a great sense of humor. She is the perfect person to be a life role model."
