Your guide to Philly's diverse creative scene, nightlife, music, food & more
In West Philadelphia, a megastar was born and raised. We're talking about Philly favorite and Grammy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Will Smith.
He's been busy filming the third installment of Men in Black (MIB3), but not too busy to invite Philly 360° and some lucky Philly students in the Destined to Achieve Successful Heights (DASH) program to the movie set to get to know the star up close and personal.
DASH students got to go on location to meet Will and ask him a few questions. They also got to watch some of the filming.
Watch what Will Smith had to say to the students about his love of the Philadelphia 76ers and his inspirational words of advise.
Destined to Achieve Successful Heights (DASH) provides opportunities for students to learn about various aspects of the entertainment industry while also learning how to become innovative thinkers and leaders. DASH creates personalized learning for young adults, make learning relevant by using careers as a context for learning, and help adolescents learn about future career opportunities and connect in meaningful ways with adults who want to see them succeed.
Big Brother to Philadelphia and close friend of Will Smith, Charlie Mack, DASH program co-founders Michael McArthur and Jerome Hipps, and Executive Director of DASH, Brandon Pankey, made it all possible.
