A 12-episode web series, produced by Globe Telecom in partnership with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia, will help six girls pursue their dreams with the help of their real life fairy godmother Disney legend Lea Salonga, host Janina Vela and various mentors.

The “Disney Princess: I Dare to Dream” participants will be staying in a house where they will be mentored individually and as a group to reach their full potential, reported Sun Star.

Quark Henares, head of Globe Studios, reportedly said that more than 500 kids auditioned for the new reality web series and they want to help turn the chosen ones’ dreams into a reality.

“Inspiration comes from within. These kids have big aspirations and we want to support them all the way,” Henares was quoted as saying.

The six lucky girls are Hya Leonardo, Sirach Catipay, Liana San Diego, Jaden Narvios, Stephanie Jordan and Alexi Tan, the report said.

Leonardo, who aspires to become a Broadway singer, will train under the tutelage of seasoned theater actress Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, while Catipay, a future chef, and San Diego, who wants to be a veterinarian, will be mentored by Chef Jessie Sincioco and Dr. Nielsen Donato, respectively.

Twelve-year-old Tan hopes to become a future illustrator/animator and will get firsthand knowledge from animator Tito Romero while Jordan, an aspiring host, will learn techniques from YouTube personality Charisma Star, said the news portal.

Narvios, the youngest of the bunch, lists among current affairs and politics as her interests and wants to be the future president of the country. The nine-year-old will reportedly be mentored by social educator and 2009 CNN Hero of the Year Efren Penaflorida. Aside from their mentors, the girls will also be inspired by Disney’s iconic princesses and their incredible stories and qualities.

“Every Disney Princess is the heroine of a unique adventure story inspiring kids with messages of hope and optimism. What people love about the Disney Princesses are their incredible stories and the qualities that help them achieve their dreams,” Sun Star quoted Amit Malhotra, general manager of Disney Media Networks, as saying.
