Indiana teen dresses as Princess Elsa to visit children in hospital

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An Indiana teen spread joy and magic to children who needed it Wednesday.

Mariah Thompson took a cue from the Disney movie "Frozen," visiting a hospital in Terre Haute dressed as Princess Elsa. The 16-year-old reads books to the children, and sing along to some favorite songs from the movie. 

Thompson says she hopes to help the kids embrace their confidence so that they never lose sight of their potential.

"You never know what they're dealing with, so it's nice to get them to smile and just have a good day," Thompson said. "For the kids that don't have a lot, whenever I sing and dance with them, they were a whole other person."

Thompson says she plans to pursue a career in nursing after she graduates from high school.
