So you've scheduled your Disney College Program phone interview or are about to. First, let me say, congratulations! You've made it so far in this process. Be proud of yourself.

Back on track now. You're getting ready for your PI (phone interview). You're probably super nervous and worried that you don't know how to study for the most important interview of your life.

Have no fear. We've all been there. These are 8 easy things to remember to have with you as you get ready to answer the call.

1. Your resume

This is important because it has all of your previous work and volunteer experience on it! Your recruiter will probably ask about your previous jobs and employers.

2. Your DCP application

This is super important to have because this is what your recruiter has in front of himself! Review it so that you can make sure you remember what you wrote.

3. A list of your top roles in order

Be sure to order them in case your recruiter asks for your top 3-5 roles!

4. The notes you took in preparation for your interview

As I mentioned in one of my previous articles, I filled out my responses to 148 possible questions that the recruiter might ask me. I had all of these questions and answers in front of me, even though I didn't really need them. I remembered all of my answers from when I wrote them down!

5. A pen & paper

If you have free moments, write some notes down. The recruiter may tell you important information which you could write down. If you think of questions that you may have for the recruiter at the end, write those as well.

6. A water bottle

I drank a cup of coffee before my interview, and I'm thankful I had my water. As we all know, coffee tends to coat your throat, which causes a lot of throat clearing and coughing. Keep a water bottle nearby in case you get a tickle in your throat!

7. A phone cord

Phones are unpredictable. Don't rely on your battery lasting, and don't rely on your cell service always working. Keep a phone cord nearby in case you have to plug it in before or during your interview.

8. Something Disney or Mickey themed

This will remind you what you're competing for. I wore a Mickey Mouse ring, and every time I glanced at it, I smiled because I remembered who I'd be working for if I got accepted!

These are all the things that I had in front of me during my phone interview! I felt more prepared because of each of these things. I highly suggest using the 148 possible questions, copying them down in a Word document, and then filling out your personal answers to each question. It made my interview flow so much smoother than if I had not prepared this way.

Best of luck to everyone applying!

Have a magical day! °o°

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
