FREDONIA, NY - Here at Channel 2 we like to celebrate Western New York, and we're celebrating the goal of a local college student with a special wish, that the Walt Disney company makes her dream of creating a disabled character come true.
Burgandi Rakoska has always been fascinated and inspired by the magical Disney characters in books, shows, and movies.
"The whole company has just created this, not only one world, but multiple worlds that you can escape into," Rakoska said.
And the SUNY Fredonia student, who hopes to become an early childhood teacher, has always identified with certain princesses like Belle and Tiana and their storylines and character traits.
"Dreams are good but at the same time you want to go above and beyond and you have to work to make something happen," Rakoska said.
