Grace Lusk always knew she wanted to work for Disney, so during 2018 when she was browsing the career pages and noticed that the Disney Cultural Exchange Program was open to Australians, she completed the application forms the same night, and the rest, as they say, is history. Not that Grace’s entrée to her dream job was simple or straightforward. After a rigorous five stage selection process, she commenced working with the Disney organisation in August 2019.
Grace has since enjoyed every moment of her time in the United States. Her favourite memories are the Halloween and Christmas parties and helping young fans to meet their Disney heroes. Seeing the faces of the youngsters light up brings great enjoyment to Grace’s work.
From here, Grace is determined to live life in the United States to the fullest. She plans to travel to New York, California and Hawaii at the end of her Cultural Exchange Program before returning to Melbourne in late 2020 to finish her Design Degree at Swinburne University of Technology. In the meantime, Grace is living the dream!
