Mario Thomas considers himself a multipotentialite because he has never been able to answer the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?”
Mario has many passions and interests and believes strongly that he cannot and should not resign himself to comply with the notion of a narrowly focused life that is the commonly used societal benchmark for success. His life goal is learn as much as he can and follow as many of his life passions as time will allow.
A native of St. Mary and a local of Queens New York, New Haven, Connecticut and DuPont Circle, Washington D.C., Mario enjoys traveling, finding strategic connections and friends and conceptualizing innovative business ideas.
Mario believes that Jamaica has the potential to become the Singapore of the Caribbean and has pledged to do everything in his power to ensure that Vision 2030 becomes a reality. Hence his reason for joining Cornerstone because he sees in the organization a group of strategic and powerful individuals who can help him to make that dream a reality.
Mario earned a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and a Certificate in Phlebotomy from Northern Caribbean University in 2015, a Comprehensive Master of Arts ’17 in Religion from Yale Divinity School, and a Certificate in Real Estate Principles and Practices from Gateway Community College, in New Haven Connecticut.
He is currently working at the Embassy of Jamaica in Washington D.C., as Assistant to the Ambassador for Communications and Strategy.
