Chasing Dreams: Entrepreneurship Tips from CEOs Who Mentored Teens During Disney Dreamers Academy Virtual Program Series
Disney brings you part 2 of their 3 part series called “Chasing Dreams”. Here, inspirational lessons are shared from the Disney Dreamers Academy Virtual Program Series.
Disney Dreamers Academy is an annual four-day, transformational mentoring program that brings high school students from across the United States to Walt Disney World Resort for an immersive learning experience. The free program encourages participants to pursue their dreams and make a difference in the lives of others.
At the Disney Dreamers Academy, entrepreneurship has always been an important topic. The Class of 2020 included 6 students who are currently running their own businesses or charitable organizations and several other aspiring business owners. At age 13, Azaria Cherry of Norfolk, VA, started a non-profit, ZincGirlz, designed to introduce inner-city girls to STEM. Adonna McBride of McDonough, GA is an aspiring business owner who plans to own an international law firm upon graduation.
Disney invited three successful businesswomen, during the 2020 virtual program, who run their own companies to share insights with the class of Disney Dreamers on how planning, inspiration, fearlessness and other skills are keys to successful entrepreneurship. Tune in for these tips from CEOs Sonia Jackson-Myles, who after 20 years as a corporate executive, started her own company The Sister Accord, a mentoring program for girls and women; Becky Davis, CEO & Chief Bosspreneur of MVPworks, who is recognized as one of the nation’s leading business experts; and 16-year-old Mikaila Ulmer, whose lemonade company, Me & The Bees was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank and is sold at major grocery stores nationwide.
Our hope is that these tips may spark you to pursue your dreams!
