Ms. Harris is majoring in Hotel, Restaurant, & Tourism Management at Cheyney University.

Harris states: “I am thankful to be able to participate in the Walt Disney College Program. It has been dream of mine since my freshman year. Not only will it help my personal and career development, but it also allows me the opportunity to discover and learn more about myself.”
