Why? Because of a dream. I've been dreaming of working for Disney for some time now. And it has already partially come true! Back in 2008, I started working at Walt Disney World in Florida on the Disney College Program. I loved every minute I was there, met so many great people, and learned so much about myself. When I returned home after 5 months, I missed it every day. It's February 2010, and still, I daydream about being back there all the time.
Of course I returned home to Texas so I could complete my degree, but I knew from then on that Disney was going to be in my future. No matter what. So upon my return, I joined my University's Disney Campus Rep team to help promote the program. I've been volunteering my time for over a year now, and love being connected to Disney from Texas.
As for the next step in my life, I will be applying for a Professional Internship within the month to hopefully go back to Florida and work in my field.
