Student Chosen for Disney Dreamers Academy
Fox Chapel Area High School sophomore Jacques Moye was selected as a winner in the 2019 Disney Dreamers Academy Essay Contest. As a winner, Jacques will receive an all-expense-paid trip to attend the Disney Dreamers Academy with Steve Harvey and ESSENCE® magazine at the Walt Disney World® Resort near Orlando, Florida, March 21-24, 2019.
A total of 100 high school students were selected for the Academy that is a four-day power-packed event where students are inspired, motivated, and prepared to dream big. The purpose is to inspire students, allow them to explore careers alongside working professionals, and to learn skills that give them an edge in the job market. The weekend will include educational sessions, career activities, inspirational guest speakers, networking and interviewing opportunities, and other hands-on learning activities throughout the living classroom of the Walt Disney World Resort.
In 2008, Walt Disney World created the Disney Dreamers Academy in partnership with Steve Harvey and ESSENCE magazine to encourage Dreamers along their paths to success, to provide them with tools to let their potential shine, and to convey that the power of dreaming is the first step to achieving their goals.
