A Baltimore teen was selected to participate in this year's 2016 Disney Dreamer's Academy.

Jeremiah Pearl, a student at Calvert Hall College, was among 100 students out of 10,000 applicants chosen for the prestigious workshop.

The academy's mission is to inspire kids and fuel their dreams.

Disney flew the students to Orlando last week for a four-day, all expense paid workshop focusing on leadership and a variety of career paths.

We know firsthand that Jeremiah has a very bright future ahead of himself. He is a dedicated junior journalist of ABC2's Teen Media Project.

Jeremiah plays varsity football for Calvert Hall. Off the field, he is an eagle scout and a peer minister.

Jeremiah is also a Student of the Year candidate for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
