Disney Youth Education Series

As I begin my junior year in High School I have decided to focus my attention on several business and marketing classes offered which allow me to gain college credit. This year I am focusing on business law, sports marketing, and managing your personal brand.

Niskayuna High School is offering an opportunity to attend a Disney Leadership Training seminar offered at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. The three day course will offer a highly personal journey exploring life markers that provide an introspective look at skills and interests, the impact of personal appearance and personal publishing and the story we are telling others through our actions.  In addition we will spend a day at Epcot where the curriculum will focus on creative leadership of a man who was perhaps one of the greatest visionaries of the 20th century-Walt Disney.

My goal through this trip is to examine various leadership styles and strategies that promote success in an ever changing world and take the first steps of building my own personal brand as I begin preparing for the college application process.

I have contributed the first $300 dollars to secure my spot in February. I am now looking to raise the remaining $1,500 through my go fund me page.  Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.
