Cuban born, Spanish voice actor Yeni Alvarez is a force of nature, and a whirlwind of positivity and effortless charm. She is known for her roles as Carmela in the long running Disney cartoon series, Handy Manny (one of my daughter’s favorite’s,) Viperine in the TV movie version of the ever popular Monster High franchise: Frights, Camera, Action!, and is heard everyday by hundreds of thousands as the Spanish Voice of Disney Theme Parks worldwide (please keep your arms and legs inside the boat at all times – but… you know… in Spanish!) So ya, that’s her on It’s A Small World, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, etc, etc, etc! How cool is that? I don’t know about you, but I’ve got #disneyenvy! Yeni also tells of her rather harrowing journey from Cuba to the U.S. as a young child, and how gratitude and the decision to be happy play a huge part in her success. I loved getting to know Yeni, and I’m certain you will, too.
Thank you for sharing these enjoyable experiences. It’s very interesting to get to hear so many different perspectives on recording and events. Con panels and some other podcasts seem to focus on the “everyone in the studio” situations (Sitcom idea, maybe?). What a surprise to find out that a lot of professionals actually do “studio work” right at home.
Technology keeps evolving in so many ways that open doors to new ways of doing work just as much – if not more – than it closes doors on other job types.
