Wil Smith’s moving StoryCorps conversation with his daughter Olivia, airing around the country on NPR’s Morning Edition June 15, 2012, prompted heartfelt responses from those who know Smith and the inspiring story of how, as the single father of girl not yet two years old, he came to Bowdoin in 1996 to juggle both the rigors of his new college life and the demands of his family.

Bowdoin Magazine profiled Smith in “A Letter to Olivia” in its Winter 2000 issue.
