What a magical shoot this was! This is Faith Lee, she is a senior at McKeel Academy, but really she’s basically a full time college student at Polk State through early admissions. When Faith graduates this May she will already have her AA from Polk because she’s just that smart and awesome! Beyond being a total brainiac, she’s also a great athlete! Faith use to be a dancing machine, dedicating days and hours into the art of dance. She participated in numerous competitions with her team and is so talented. Unfortunately after a knee injury she has been side lined from being able to participate in dance (although I’ve seen her dance at different church functions, you can’t keep Faith from dancing forever 😉 ). Although the door closed on dance a new one opened with swim team! She has participated on McKeel’s swim team and has loved every minute of it.
In the fall Faith will be attending the University of Central Florida to study Hospitality Management. Faith’s all time dream is to work at Disney and that aspiration could not be anymore perfect for her. Faith has grown up a Disney lover, it has been instilled within her since she was born. Everyone in her family is an annual passholder and frequently visit the parks. I think its really awesome that Disney is something the Lee family cherishes together. No matter how busy they all may be they always find time to put everything else aside and come enjoy the parks as a family together. It would truly a perfect series of events if Faith ended up working at a place that has meant so much to her throughout her life. I believe she’s totally got what it takes to make that happen and I bet one day she’ll be the President of Walt Disney World (and a dang good one at that).
I had the best time during our shoot. Faith and her mom joined Ryan and me at the Magic Kingdom. I think we literally walked every square inch of the park taking advantage of every nook and cranny we could of the whimsical and magical land. We even road Dumbo! It was nice getting to catch up with Faith, hear how she was doing and what she was dreaming of for her future. Faith, I wish the best of luck to you as your start your new journey at UCF this fall. Literally just keep doing exactly what you’ve been doing and you’ll keep shining bright! Can’t wait to tell everyone I know one day that I know the girl who keeps making Disney great 🙂 For now, here’s a quick snapshot of our afternoon at Disney together!
