NEW PROFIT MILLENNIAL IMPACT FELLOW FEATURED IN FORBES

Posted by Madlen Gubernick on Jun 14, 2017 4:08:40 PM


Recently, one of our amazing Millennial Impact Fellows, a group of young social change agents that joined us at the 2017 Gathering of Leaders, was featured in Forbes.


Tony Weaver is a graduate of Elon University, where he received his degree in Acting and Strategic Communications. His passion for education became more focused at Elon, where he became heavily involved in communications related work as it pertained to media representation. He received a ten thousand dollar grant to conduct research on how people of color were misrepresented in mainstream media, a focus of his that has continued on throughout his career.


Tony went on to hold various intern positions, including one for NBC where he worked on the Sprout Children preschool channel. He spoke highly of his time in New York City, highlighting the influence this had on his current project: Weird Enough Productions.


The article, titled “Millennials, Step Up And Embrace Your Promise Now,” discusses the need to change the public perception of millennials, from lazy and internet obsessed, to agents of social change.

Thought-provoking, inspiring, and informative are just some of the many words that come to mind when I think about the 13th Annual Gathering of Leaders.

I had an outstanding time at the 13th Gathering of Leaders conference. It was great to be in a space with people who have different values, difference experience, but, all share a common goal to make their community a better place for all.

Somehow and rather unfortunately, the brownness of my skin and the blackness of those I love have always made proximity to violence seemingly unavoidable.

Thank you to my boss who started this incredible adventure when she forwarded the Millennial Impact Fellow application. Thank you to the people who created cell phones and accessible video apps which allowed an amateur like me to create a Youtube video. Thank you to the New Profit team who spent hours reviewing applications and extended an invitation. Thank you to my school administrators who were excited that I was selected and helped accommodate my absence. Thank you to my sister who let me crash in her college dorm room so I could have a more affordable early morning taxi ride to the airport. Thank you to Southwest for one of the most fun plane trips I have ever had as we celebrated our pilot’s last flight before retirement and Mardi Gras in the airport.

I was honored to participate in The Gathering as an inaugural New Profit Millennial Impact Fellow. Weeks later, I’m still left amazed with the connections I’ve made and the thoughtfulness of conversation when it came to how we would all contribute to making this world a more equitable place for us all.
