Connecting people to their unique human experience through Purpose.

Feb 12, 2022

Have you ever watched a Disney movie? There is a big chance (if not 100%) that you had! As a kid, we grew up watching and loving classic Disney films such as The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Toy Story, and many more. Shay is not an exception

At the tender age of 7, Shay dreamt of being a professional animator at a reputable company like Disney. With her mother's unwavering support, she has set her mind to this goal while giving herself the chance to explore other activities. Since the age of 13, Shay has already made up her mind and heart that she wants to become an animator. After graduating high school, she planned on attending Full Sail University. However, what happens when fear creeps in and she feels like giving up on her plans?

In this episode of People of Purpose, Tanur had the honor to interview Shay Stone, an author, life coach, and animator at Walt Disney Animation Studios. She has been working professionally in the film, television, and game industry for over 11 years. Shay is known in the animation industry for her intangible acting skills that are related to her lifelong passion for human behavior and psychology.
