A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to comedian and television star Steve Harvey’s house to take part in selecting the final participants for the 2011 Class of Disney’s Dreamers Academy, with Steve Harvey and Essence Magazine.
I’ve written about DDA several times online and for Heart & Soul magazine; as it’s such a special, life-changing event. Wait, I’ll let Steve tell you about it himself (it’s a short video so don’t blink, I make two quick appearances) …
I was beyond thrilled when they invited me to be one of 10 select judges.
As you can see I was in good company with Gospel Superstar Yolanda Adams; Steve Harvey and his beautiful wife, Marjorie; Terrance J., host of BET’s “106 and Park;” Sports Radio Host and Commentator Stephen A. Smith; Dr. Steve Perry, principal and founder of Capitol Preparatory Magnet School; Angela Burt-Murray, editor-in-chief of Essence Magazine; Stella Ringer, Marketing Manager, The Coca-Cola Company; Walt Disney World representatives Tracey Powell, executive champion for Disney’s Dreamers Academy and Carole Munroe, Director, Walt Disney World News Bureau; and Dalonte Hall, a 2010 Dreamer.
I’m looking forward to attending the magical weekend in March 2011 and I thank the wonderful folks at DDA for honoring me with this opportunity to help make some wonderful, young dreams come true.
