Meet the Atlanta Students Who Are Part of the 2011 Disney's Dreamers Academy

Meet the Atlanta Students Who Are Part of the 2011 Disney's Dreamers Academy

I had a great time chatting with lots of kids from all over the country that were selected to be apart of Disney’s Dreamers Academy 2011 with Steve Harvey and Essence Magazine! The kids were full of excitement to be at Disneyworld! Over 4,000 kids entered but only 111 were picked. Wow, that must have been tough to pick the kids but I can tell from their smiles and personalities that they were honored to chosen.

I met several girls that were from Georgia and you know that I had to chat with them. I met Ms. Simone from Eastpoint, Taiya from Lawrenceville and Nautica from Atlanta. Ms.Nautica is a freshman at Centennial High School. She wants to be an actress and a singer. She was so sweet and shy but had the prettiest smile ever.
