Lately I have been sharing on Facebook about an adventure that fellow Pitch List blogger Espacularaiesa has been on. Well part of those adventures was with the Disney Dreamers Academy! It sounds like she had a lot of fun and I would love to go to this one of these days! Below you will find her story:
Disney Dreamers Academy with Steve Harvey and Essence’ Magazine motivates teens to achieve their own particular goals and encourage them on a path to success. Students are involved with many workshops that present the tools they will need to turn dreams into reality.
Disney Dreamers Academy 2013 can not be summed up in one post or theme, but if I have to say a short description of this event then I will use this powerful quote… “Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers, and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it in yourself.”
More than 5,000 teens across the country applied for the 2013 Disney Dreamers Academy. Only 100 were chosen to attend. They are chosen based on their qualities as a leader, or because they inspire others by giving back and volunteering in their own communities. Many show great courage by overcoming incredible odds in their home lives, yet they keep their eyes on their dreams.
Dreamers were welcomed by Steve Harvey, Mikki Taylor (Essence Magazine), Tracy D. Powell (Disney’s Executive Champion for DDA), Meg Crofton (President Walt Disney Parks and Resorts) and Yolanda Adams (Gospel Star).
