She Never Gave Up on Her Dream of Working at Pixar

GREEN AND YELLOW FLAMES engulfed Maleficent as she transformed into a gigantic dragon.

“Fire is supposed to be red!” I thought, staring at my TV. Then, when Prince Phillip threw his sword through the heart of the fire-breathing monster, I was done.

My coach mentioned that Pixar was down the street. I immediately dropped my fork. I had no idea Pixar was near campus!
