Two weeks ago, 100 high school students got the opportunity of a lifetime when they arrived at Walt Disney World Resort to participate in the 11th edition of Disney Dreamers Academy with Steve Harvey and ESSENCE Magazine.

This one-of-a-kind mentoring program inspires young minds from across the country by fueling their dreams and showing them a world of possibilities as they prepare for the future.

We caught up with Luis Lageyre, a 15-year-old Disney Dreamer who is certainly dreaming big – he wants to be CEO of The Walt Disney Company!
