Ever since I was in middle school I have wanted to participate in the Walt Disney World College Program. This project focuses on my experiences of living and working at the "Happiest Place on Earth". My program began on January 18, 2005, and was completed on August 12, 2005.I was faced with challenges that I could have never imagined. There were great days and awful days, but I always came away with something that I could use to improve myself or my work. It really helped me to hone my communication skills, as every day I would interact with people from around the world, some of which spoke no English.I came away from the program with a wonderful fiancee, a vast collection of memories, friends from around the world, and a new perspective on work and careers. My project will help other students learn what the College Program is all about, what they can expect if they participate, and what they may take away from it.
