Willard Christopher "Will" Smith, Jr. (born September 25, 1968) was a one-time teen star, who started his career as a rapper, then became an actor and movie producer and is now practically a one-man entertainment industry, has a simple philosophy: `I can do it.` From his dad, he says, he learned to look for patterns in life, and figure out how to make them work in his favour. From his mother he learned the value of knowledge, even though he quit his formal education after high school. And from somewhere, Smith discovered an unshakable belief that he can accomplish anything he sets his mind to. At age 12, he began performing rap music at parties in his hometown of Philadelphia. By the time he was 20; his upbeat lyrics had translated into seven Billboard hits and won him a Grammy. At 21, Smith moved to Hollywood and landed a starring role on the hit TV sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, then went on to pursue his dream of becoming a movie star. Films like Independence Day, Enemy of the State Ali, and The Pursuit of Happiness for which he was nominated for an Oscar, proved that, yes, Will Smith can do it.
