This week, what I did was to catch up with my favorite series from Netflix and part of my extra time are binge watching funny youtube videos. Then I remember to watch some of the episodes of “Disney Princess: I Dare to Dream Web Series” because of my admiration to talented young individuals from different parts of the country.
For starters, Disney Princess: I Dare to Dream Web Series is a digital reality-series produced by Globe Studios in partnership with Disney and Maker Studios. At first I thought this will be just another web-series produced locally but hey jude! Pinoy Talent can really go a long way!
So I did binge-watching their episodes and glad to see various mentors pushing these girls to maximize potential! I noticed that the journey of these six young girls became both a challenge and opportunity for them through these mentors headed by Disney legend Lea Salonga with theater actress Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, social educator Efren Peñaflorida, veterinarian Dr. Nielsen Donato, animator Tito Romero, chef Jessie Sincioco and YouTuber and host Charisma Star.
I think Globe Telecom and Disney had a hard time choosing the participants because I’ve heard everyone is soooo good that you cannot just say NO to those. These girls aged 9 to 16 years old with a range of diverse interests were selected from a series of auditions last year.
The six girls are Hya Leonardo, Sirach Catipay, Liana San Diego, Jaden Narvios, Stephanie Jordan and Alexi Tan. Hya Leonardo wants to be a broadway actress and a singer. She has always been passionate about performing in front of a large audience. Sirach Catipay is an aspiring chef. The moment she started cooking with her mom, she realized that she wanted to be a chef someday and share her dishes to other people. Liana San Diego is an aspiring veterinarian, saying she wants to try and learn more about her passions. Jaden Narvios wants to be the next president of the Philippines. Stephanie Jordan is an aspiring Newscaster/TV Host, while Alexi Tan is an aspiring animator.
I started to like Alexi and Sirach. Their passion to learn is addicting. Same with other girls, I think the healthy competition keep them stay until the end! Wait I am going to share with you one of my favorite episodes, the episode 7 where it involves cooking. Because I don’t know how to cook (at all) so I really admire Sirach for a job well done. All I know is to eat. So here you go. (But I assumed you guys watch the rest of the episodes.
Watch these girls as they go through the last stretch of their Disney Princess: I Dare To Dream journey through an upcoming live concert extravaganza with their coach Lea Salonga and a star studded lineup of other Filipino music talent and featuring songs from Disney Princess movies on March 22 at the SM MOA Arena.
The Disney Princess: I Dare To Dream web series will be aired on Globe Telecom’s YouTube channel and on www.idaretodream.ph. This will also be aired on Disney Channel and on the Disney Channel mobile app in May.
