Disney’s Dreamer Academy meets Anika Noni Rose, voice of Princess Tiana

This last week Disney’s Dreamer Academy brought one hundred high school students from across the country one step closer to turning their dreams into reality. In collaboration with nationally syndicated radio personality Steve Harvey, Walt Disney World Resort is hosting the students for an innovative career inspiration program that includes interactive workshops, motivational talks and hands-on creative experiences.

“The Walt Disney World organization has been a great partner in this initiative, and their commitment to providing students with a once-in-a-lifetime experience, such as Disney’s Dreamers Academy, is commendable,” said Steve Harvey. “Together, we have the ability to enhance the lives of these deserving kids by showing them that there are many ways to follow your dreams.”

One of the motivational speakers the students met was Anika Noni Rose, voice of Princess Tiana in Disney’s upcoming animated feature The Princess and The Frog. Here Rose is interviewed by Ashley.
