Kissimmee — The star of the new movie Dolphin Tale visited Kissimmee this week to talk about the film and something else close to her heart.
Cozi Zuehlsdorff attended the Florida Parent Education Association’s annual convention. The young actress came all the way from California for the event.
Cozi and her character, Hazel, are both home-schooled.
Cozi said she was glad to return to Florida, the site of her first role in a major motion picture.
“It’s just a really cool message to tell people. Don’t be afraid to bring your kids. It’s homeschoolers, we are all together. It’s animals. It’s gonna be really inspiring and beautiful for everyone,” said Zuehlsdorff.
