Anna Faith, a teenager from Florida, looks a lot like Elsa, the lonely snow queen from Disney's Frozen. In fact, she looks so much like Elsa that she and a pal don costumes and hire themselves out for events and visits to schools. Fans, please try not to bombard her with requests for adult birthday parties; knocking…
