Who Am I: Creator of Mickey Mouse

Born in the newly annexed community of Hermosa on Chicago's Northwest side, I attended McKinley High School. I started my own businesses called Laugh-O-Grams in Kansas City. While my first business failed, my subsequent endeavors that started in Hollywood have thrived to this day. Who am I? Walt Disney.
