Embarking on a journey to Los Angeles, I found myself on the precipice of a new adventure—one that is not only shaping my career but redefining my understanding of the entertainment industry. As I stepped into the realm of Disney’s Creative Talent Development & Inclusion (CTDI), I was greeted with a sense of excitement and anticipation, knowing that I was about to embark on a transformative experience alongside 60 fellow participants. Here I recount my unforgettable trip to Los Angeles and the magical journey that unfolded at the Disney CTDI alumni event.

The event kicked off with a private viewing of Station 19, setting the stage for what would be a day filled with inspiration and insight. As the lights dimmed and the screen came to life, I found myself immersed in the captivating world of television production. But it was the discussions that followed that truly left a lasting impression. Showrunners took to the stage, offering a behind-the-scenes glimpse into their creative process and the ever-evolving landscape of the television business. From the demise of prime time to the rise of streaming platforms, every insight shared served as a reminder of the resilience and adaptability required to thrive in this dynamic industry.

Amidst the buzz of the event, I had the opportunity to connect with fellow alumni and industry professionals—a chance to network and exchange ideas with like-minded individuals who shared my passion for storytelling. It was during these moments of connection that I realised the true value of CTDI—a community of creative minds united by a common purpose, eager to support and uplift one another on our journey to success.

But perhaps the most rewarding aspect of the event was witnessing the tangible impact of CTDI on the lives of its participants. From success stories of alumni landing coveted roles on television shows to the sense of excitement surrounding future opportunities, it was clear that CTDI was more than just a program—it was a pathway to dreams realised and futures transformed.

As I reflect on my trip to Los Angeles and the Disney CTDI alumni event, I am filled with gratitude for the experiences shared and the connections made. From the private viewing of Station 19 to the insightful discussions with industry insiders, every moment served as a reminder of the power of storytelling and the endless possibilities that await those who dare to dream. And as I continue on my creative journey, I carry with me the lessons learned and the memories made, knowing that the magic of Disney’s CTDI will forever shape my path to creative empowerment.
