If I could earn a living doing what I love the most it would be to work for Disney in someway. My reasoning behind this is because in this day in age I’ve witnessed so many kids’ dreams being defeated by the cruel sense of reality that is placed in front of them. For past, present, and undoubtedly future generations Disney acts as a source of creating otherwise outlandish dreams of “growing up” to become a princess, a hero, or to be the genie from Aladdin a reality. It gives kids an outlet that they can frequently utilize to become more creative along with strengthening the right side of their brain.

Unfortunately these dreams tend to become skewed later on life due to the fact that only on rare occasions will the premise of fairytale worlds exist in society. However, it allows kids a basis for the dreams that can later become their careers and lives. For example, a little girl that wants to be Cinderella and talk to animals could eventually become a veterinarian. The steps I will take will be to attend the Disney College Program and attend University to get my BA in whichever major I decide. But no matter what I know that Disney will be my finish line and ultimate goal. In the wise words of Walt Disney “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” My dream and passion is to keep the dreams of our youth alive.
