Steve Harvey Honors & Surprises Disney Dream Academy 2017 “Courage Award Winner”, 16 Year-Old, William Williams
I had never heard of the Disney Dreamers Academy until today, thanks to a website named momsncharge.com I now have a new found respect for Disney, not only because Disney Dream Academy inspires 100 select high school students, ages 13-19, to "Dream" and gives those students an opportunity to get a head-start on making their dreams come true; Disney Dream Academy has also helped expose and give voice to a young man who has lived a life of pure "peer torture", which has ironically inspired him to overcome all of his negative life experiences.
William Williams is that young man. Born with albinism, 16 year-old William bravely expressed his experiences in such a moving 'Spoken Word' speech that he not only won the Disney Dream Academy Courage Award, he was also Blessed by Steve Harvey as you'll see in one of the videos below. But first and foremost. let's meet William Williams and hear his Outstanding Spoken Word account of his struggles with being bullied since the age of 5 and his triumph over them.
Congratulations William Williams and thank you for sharing your courage and story with all of us!
(please note that you are seeing all of this in advance of The Steve Harvey Show airing it on April 24, 2017)
