Twenty-one year old Heather Hale of Watertown, NY in a short but sweet interview reviled to me that she has one of the biggest hearts. During her seven month stay on a Disney World resort enrolled in the Disney college program she was able to volunteer for a program called Give Kids the World a program that offers families with terminally ill children the opportunity to come and stay at no coast at the Give the Kids the World village.
As a volunteer her duties were to help the kids get involved in a life size game of Candy Land, also helping them make ginger bread houses. During this time of the child’s day it was a guaranteed nurse free zone where the children were never ask about their illnesses. Heather continued to say how her experience helping these children and their families have a good time touched her heart and made her a better person.
When she had first arrived at the resort her and a friend went to character auditions, there her friend landed a role as character and even though Heather had a sweet personality she sadly didn’t land the role she wanted as a princess. “I wanted to be a princess” she said.
In reality even though she didn’t land the role of a princess she landed a great role as a candy land helper touching every child’s heart she met.
We started off by having a conversation about what she had did over the summer and by the end I was happy to know that there are still people out there with big hearts.
