"I have severe anxiety and depression, and have had them since I was a kid. I also grew up with Disney movies, and going to Disney World has become very therapeutic for me. I feel like it’s the only place in the world I can let go of my problems and just be myself. I’m always the happiest when I go there. Last February I took my best friend with me and she said that she has never seen me happier. I hope I can take my boyfriend one day so he can see it, too."
"Since I got accepted to the Disney internship program everyone keeps asking me if i’m gonna feel homesick, and honestly no. My current job sucks, my family is nothing but full of negativity so i can’t really talk or relate to anyone. Yes i’ll miss my friends, but I cant wait to leave this small town behind, and finally go home"
"I never got the chance to do the DCP during college, so I always thought I would never have a shot at working at Disney as a creative. After years working for other companies I ended up in Orlando, I decided to apply for some cool jobs on a whim. It turns out, all my hard work and experience paid off and now I have a pretty awesome job with the Mouse. Never give up, work hard and keep on wishing!"
"I have aspergers syndrome. When I saw Wreck It Ralph, I really related to Vanellope. When she got pushed down into the mud, my heart broke because I knew what it was like to be ignored and not wanted. But when she embraced her glitch, my heart sang. She’s my hero."
"I’ve always been nervous around the Disney face-characters. I don’t know why, but I always get fluttery whenever I see them and they say hello to me. I have been currently gaining the confidence to ask for autographs, and starting to talk to them, but I still get kind of jittery"
Akira is my favorite movie of all time, just because it’s the film that got me into actually wanting to work on animated movies. (That and Castle in the Sky). But Akira made me realize how much more animated movies could be. It was the first animated movie I saw that wasn’t geared towards kids. I think some things I dislike about it are that in the second half of the movie it gets a bit muddled, I like the manga a bit better in that sense, everything’s clearer.
Favorite book? I don’t know, easily Harry Potter, but I also love Treasure Island.
