What an inspiring weekend! The sixth class of Disney Dreamers Academy with Steve Harvey and Essence Magazine was dismissed on Sunday ready to achieve their dreams.
Over the course of four days, 100 high school students known as Disney Dreamers experienced an outside-the-classroom, educational and mentoring experience throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Dreamers were encouraged to get a jumpstart on their dreams through workshops led by well-known and respected professionals in the students’ desired career fields.
This year’s celebrity speakers included Steve Harvey, E! News Host Terrence J, American Idol contestants Kimberley Locke and Ruben Studdard, Grey’s Anatomy stars Chandra Wilson and James Pickens, Grammy winning gospel singer Yolanda Adams, celebrity chefs Jeff Henderson and The Chew’s Carla Hall and many others.
Here’s a video to give you a better idea of last weekend’s transformational experience…
As the 2013 class is released to go after their goals with a new outlook, Disney Dreamers Academy will continue to reach out to inspire others through the Disney Dreamers Academy Champion program and other speaking engagements.
