Disney makes the dreams come true for an aspiring teen astronaut.

A teenager from New York City has always dreamt of being an astronaut and now her dreams may come true as she just found out she is the latest student to be honored with “the opportunity of a lifetime” by The Walt Disney Company.

Myah Mitchell, who is a student at The Mary Louis Academy in Queens, just found out that she has been accepted into Disney Dreamers Academy.

On a recent episode of Good Morning America, Keke Palmer, who is from GMA3: Strahan, Sara & Keke, surprised Myah Mitchell and broke the exciting news live Good Morning America.

Thursday morning, Keke Palmer entered Myah’s classroom, and right in front of her teachers, principal and classmates, she showed the aspiring teen a video clip.

The video included a taped message from one of Mitchell’s idols, Dr. Mae Jemison, who was the first African-American woman in space, who was the one who told Myah she has been accepted into the program.

You can watch the full video of Myah being accepted here.
