Harris Rosen visits children at

Tangelo Park Elementary School

A SOUTHWEST ORLANDO

ICON REFLECTS ON

25 YEARS OF GIVING BACK 407.996.4890 | RosenHotels.com

If home is where the heart is, then Harris Rosen’s home is global and his

heart infinite. As a sea of homemade “We Love Harris Rosen” banners

bobbed among crowds of eager Haitian children, clad in pristine blue and

white school uniforms to thank the man who provided their brand new

school, the recipient of the outpouring was overwhelmed. “I never get

used to this type of attention,” said Harris Rosen, founder and owner of

Rosen Hotels & Resorts. Rosen was recently in Haiti for the dedication of

l’Institution Mixte Saint-Jean de Jonc l’Abeille-Harris Rosen school. And

to greet many families who now – thanks to him – experience a rare sense

of security in the impoverished country. Rosen’s team just completed

the rebuilding of more than 100 homes devastated by 2016’s Hurricane

Matthew. The new homes are hurricane- and earthquake-resistant with

solar panels, bathrooms and more.

For more than half of the 43 years Rosen’s now nine hotels have provided

Orlando’s best “home away from home” and thousands of jobs for Orlando

residents, he has been quietly, with intensity, creating better homes for

others. He says he does this because “it’s the right thing to do.” Whether

rebuilding physical structures such as in Haiti or entire communities such

as in Southwest Orlando’s Tangelo Park, his first philanthropic endeavor

25 years ago, or more currently in downtown Orlando’s Parramore district,

the positive change is palpable. By providing free college scholarships

(including room and board), free childcare (which also provides more

than 10 full-time jobs) and parental support to Tangelo Park, high school

graduation rates have soared to almost 100 percent and crime is nearly

non-existent. All of this and more, because the community has united

under Harris Rosen’s umbrella of hope and promise of a better life for its

future generations.

In Southwest Orlando, where Rosen has called home for more than 45

years and raised his family including his now-adult children Jack, Joshua,

Adam and Shayna, he has focused on families through building The Jack

& Lee Rosen SW Orlando JCC and donating millions to refurbish the ailing

YMCA Aquatic Center. He also funded the Rosen College of Hospitality

Management at UCF and sponsors more than 20 charity galas at his

hotels. “I’ve been blessed beyond my wildest dreams with my business,”

said Rosen, “and most importantly with the fellowship and support of my

own community. It is because of these blessings, I’m able to help others.

And am so grateful to do so.”

What do you want to be when you

grow up? It’s a question children are

almost routinely asked as they go

through school. The lofty answers are

typically far off into the future — fireman,

police officer, astronaut, writer.

Very rarely can a young person hope

to achieve such titles before graduating

high school. One young woman

is the exception. Emma Neary,

a sophomore at Windermere

Preparatory School, began writing

her novel, Broken Dreams: A

Modern Twist of the Classic Cinderella

Story, at the age of 14 when she was

a freshman. She became a published

author at age 15.

Almost every child has heard the

story of Cinderella. The fairy godmother,

evil stepmother and stepsisters,

prince, the pumpkin and mice

— it is the ultimate fairy tale of rising

from misfortune to find dreams come

true. Emma looked beyond the classic

tale to envision a new plot for its

characters. Much like characters that

often find unexpected obstacles in

their stories, Emma's journey was not

an easy one.

High School Sophomore Publishes Novel

Neary turns a life-changing event into her first novel.

young age. Her future changed in

December 2014, when she was diagnosed

with hypertrophic obstructive

cardiomyopathy, a condition in

which the heart muscle becomes abnormally

thick, which also caused a

heart murmur. The young girl, who

was actively involved in dance, the

performing arts and sports, was suddenly

being told not to do anything

that could risk affecting her heart.

“It turned my world upside down,

because I didn’t know what else

to do with my life,” Emma said.

“When you have this condition, you

aren’t supposed to do any strenuous

activity.”

She needed to find another way

to channel her artistic creativity.

Emma’s theater involvement became

very limited, but she found that she

could still express what she loved

about theater in other ways. One of

her favorite aspects of acting was

the ability to become different characters.

She found a way to continue

exploring other viewpoints through

writing.

The idea for the novel came after a

play rehearsal while Emma and her

father, Kevin Neary, were driving

to their Celebration home. She

was thinking, How many Cinderella

stories have been done before?

She began to envision a futuristic

Cinderella story, in which the characters

had to handle modern issues

like technology and bullying.

She built a story outline in her free

time, and when the book was finished,

sent it to a publisher without

telling anyone, even her parents. The

publisher initially rejected the book;

however, in July 2017, he decided

to give it another chance. It was

released to the public Jan. 5, 2018.

“I’ve heard from a lot of people

who bought the book and read it

— they find it very interesting,” she

said.

The positive feedback has helped

fuel Emma into continuing to expand

her writing talents.

“I’ve branched out to other categories

of writing,” she said. “I’ve

become very interested in playwriting

and screenwriting, as well as

inspirational stories, true stories and

historical fiction. I’ve had a few stories

in the pipeline that are finished.

Hopefully, they will be published

soon and released.”

Emma credits her teachers and

classmates at WPS for their support.

From the very beginning,

teachers were willing to help with

grammar and context. Friends read

the book and gave Emma insight

and thoughts, especially about the

characters. Their input allowed

Emma to open up her characters’

world to include more dynamic

characters to propel the story.

After the book’s release, school officials

advertised it in the library,

making sure every student has the

opportunity to read it. Emma especially

credits her mother in aiding

her success.

“I thank my mom [Susan Neary]

for the inspiration and how she has

helped and supported me through

this entire process,” Emma said.

For her peers, Emma has this

message: “No matter what you

think is in your way, don’t let it stop

you. Don’t let anything stop you

from being what you want to be.

You’re the author of your own story.

We’re all capable of success if

we let ourselves have it.” ª


Educators agree exposing children

to the arts early in life benefits

their creativity and grasp of subject

matter as they grow. One of the

cornerstones of Orlando’s cultural

corridor, bordered by Mills Avenue

and Princeton Street, is as far as

one needs to look for performing

arts to spark a child’s imagination.

Orlando Repertory Theatre,

aka Orlando REP, has a mission

“to create experiences that

enlighten, entertain and enrich the

lives of family and young audiences.”

Now in its 15th season, it

strives to offer the finest in family

entertainment.

Artistic Director Jeffrey Revels

believes Orlando REP has an

even bigger commitment to the

community.

“We know that young people

today are not immune to the world

around them, so we bear some

responsibility in addressing that

world,” he said. “Theater is an

extremely powerful tool for sharing

perspectives and cultivating

empathy.”

BUSINESS

Orlando REP’s 2017-18 season

runs from September through May

and features six professional productions,

Youth Academy performances

and limited engagement

performances.

Orlando REP presents Disney’s Newsies The Musical for families and young audiences.

The current mainstage production

— Madagascar — A Musical

Adventure — is a live version of

next one opens. On April 8, the curtain

rises on Judy Moody & Stink:

The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure

Hunt, based on two books by Judy

Moody. A pirate greets the Moody

family and sends Judy and Stink on

an adventure riddled with clues,

codes and puzzles to be solved. If

your child is a problem solver, a fan

of pirates, or an adventure lover, this

show will entertain and engage. It

runs through May 13.

Whe entering Orlando REP's multicolored

lobby, you cannot help but feel

something exciting is about to happen.

Performances can be held in three different

theaters, two of which seat 330+

patrons and one that seats 100. Each

of the theaters are available to rent, depending

on availability throughout the

year. Curtain time for regular season

performances is 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

on Saturdays and Sundays. Orlando

REP also hosts school field trips and

limited engagements that may have

differing start times.

Florida League officials announced

the schedule for the 15th

baseball season. Six teams will

compete throughout the summer in

five different Central Florida communities:

Deland, Leesburg, Sanford,

Winter Garden and Winter Park.

The season kicks off May 31, and

Winter Garden’s first game is June 1.

Each team is scheduled to play 45

regular season games, with either 22

or 23 of those games being played

at home. The All-Star Game, featuring

the top players in the league, will

take place July 7 in Sanford.

Before the summer showcase, fans

will enjoy the annual home run derby,

including eight of the top power

hitters in the league. Later in the

month, the top-25 prospects — as

voted by league coaches and staff

— will travel to North Carolina to

play against other summer league

prospect teams in front of dozens of

MLB scouts at the annual Southwest

Prospect Showcase. Last year,

Florida League went 2-0.

The First Academy students from

ceramics III, IV and AP performed

the annual raku firing process on

campus. Those from ceramics II and

middle school ceramics joined during

their class periods throughout the day

to watch. Raku is a pottery technique

originating in 16th century Japan.

Rather than loading glazed pottery

into electric kilns to cure up to 2,000

degrees for 24 hours, the raku process

uses a 30-minute firing process.

Similar to pottery firing techniques in

Biblical times using large underground

wood-fed pit fires, propane gas was

used to bring the pottery to near

1,700 degrees quickly. The day also

consisted of grilling burgers and roasting

s’mores for the students.
