Why I want to be a 2019 Travel Weekly Cover Star

My name's Rich and I've been working in travel and for Kuoni for the past five years. I'm passionate about travel and always looking to broaden my horizons and see more of the world in order to help me become the best I can be in putting dream trips together for customers (and for some incredible experiences for me)! I'm obsessed with Disney (visited all parks worldwide apart from Shanghai). I think winning a place on CoverStars would allow me to build upon my existing Disney Parks knowledge (seeing the Pandora section of Animal Kingdom and Star War's Galaxy first-hand would be an incredible opportunity), that I could share with customers and trade agents alike. Aside from the professional perk of winning, becoming a cover star would mean a lot on a personal level. For most of my adult life, I've struggled with eating disorders and body dysmorphia - which as you can imagine, sucks. To win the professional photo-shoot would help massively boost my confidence and help me feel more comfortable in my own skin. To get to do this at the happiest place on Earth would be a dream come true!
