On January 12, our very own Joseph Fortuno went on air with Larry Jacobs of Education Talk Radio and Ed Grocholski of Junior Achievement. In this segment, Junior Achievement Working with Schools...Inspiring the Next Generations of Entrepreneurs, Fortuno talks about his story, accomplishments, and his current works with Gladeo.

"The main reason why I share my story is to inspire", says Fortuno. As you may know, Joseph got his start by being a part of the Junior Achievement Company Program. On Education Talk, he shares how JA inspired him during a time where he was battling homelessness, depression and anxiety. Today, Fortuno is studying Digital Media Management at Cogswell Polytechnical College. and is Gladeo's Student Ambassador Program Director. Not only that, but through his success in JA, Fortuno earned a national title at the JA Leadership Summit, shared his story on national TV, and recently, met President Barack Obama.
If there's one phrase that Larry Jacobs says throughout his interview with Fortuno it's, "WOW!", even stating "[Fortuno's] probably gonna be Senator Joe Fortuno."
Yes, Larry, "WOW!" indeed. We are very lucky to have Joseph as a leader in our organization and there is nothing but success in his future!
But it's not over! Towards the end of the interview, Larry Jacobs was so inspired that he invites Gladeo to be on his radio talk show in the future! So be on the lookout for Gladeo on Education Talk Radio this upcoming February!
