How Princess Belle Inspired a Young Photographer

Every spring, Mother Nature puts her beauty on display — flowers bloom and trees sprout bright green leaves — but sometimes, it's easy to miss when you're focused on your busy to-do list. That's why 11-year-old Leila started taking close-up photos of flowers: to uncover the details one might not notice at first glance.

Princess Belle inspired Leila to look at everything through a positive lens. This new outlook encouraged Leila to start a charity to say thank you to healthcare workers at her local hospital. She sends over packages filled with baked goods, her photos, and personalized notes. Tap play on the video above to see how Belle encourages Leila to find beauty in everything.

We've partnered with Disney to share how princesses like Belle have inspired the next generation to spread kindness, bravery, and joy.
