Widny lived a sheltered life at 16 in New Jersey until a freak accident changed his young life. Struggling with the aftermath, medical issues and depression, Widny was headed towards a dark future. Framed as a one-week vacation, his parents bought him a (secret) one-way ticket to San Francisco. Though angry and resentful, Widny accepted his fate and made some positive changes. JVS played a pivotal role, helping him graduate from high school, enroll in City College and get a job at Uniqlo. He’s on his way to achieving his greatest potential and has big plans to become a physical therapist.
