Anthony Weaver was 19 years old when he first stepped foot into a Beyond Expectations class. His wish to learn television and video production was granted by a phenomenal organization, One Simple Wish. As soon as walked through the door, we put a boom pole in his hands as we prepared for a mock segment we were planning to shoot at Riverview Studios, a state-of-the art television studio.
He's been with us every since.
Turns out Tony (or as we call him "Wolf") was a natural. After completing our Spring Boot Camp, he returned for our Summer program where he trained as an Intern sharing his new talents with a great group of teens at the Trenton YMCA Leaders in Training program.
When the opportunity came his way to appear on the Katie Couric show with One Simple Wish founder, Danielle Gletow, he knew exactly what to do. He's since gone on to complete an internship at WPST radio and continues to be a part of our Beyond Expectations crew!
