LaDariah Boone is among 100 high school students chosen to participate in the program!

“I am an International Baccalaureate (IB) student and a member of the National Society of High School Scholars. Currently, I am trying out for the tennis team, as well as ex-ploring other extracurricular opportunities. I like to read, listen to music, write, and create art. I am passionate about helping others and believe that even the smallest contribution can make a difference. Following high school, I hope to attend Johns Hopkins University to pursue a career in Pe-diatrics. Ultimately, I want to have my own practice and change people’s lives for the better,” LaDariah says.

Now in its 10th year, the Disney Dreamers Academy has helped to inspire young minds from across the country by fueling their dreams and showing them a world of possibilities as they prepare for the future.
