“I draw my strength from you.”

For our 10th anniversary, we're revisiting some favorite stories.

At 27, Wil Smith's age wasn't the only thing that set him apart from other college freshmen. He was also raising his infant daughter, Olivia. At StoryCorps, they looked back on their college days.

Just before recording, Wil found out he had cancer. Recently, they came back to tell us how they’re doing now.
