Q & A with DJ Will from Power 105!

Name: Will Tobias aka DJ Will “The Bronx Bomber”
Occupation: DJ at Power 105
Hometown: The Bronx, NY

• Did you attend the Prom?

Yes, I did, 12th grade DeWitt Clinton High School. It was really cool! It’s funny I was DJing at the time, not at my school. No one really knew I was DJing but I did different parties and was gaining my popularity. I went to prom with the “IT’” girl in school. Everyone wanted to go to prom with this girl. My social studies teacher hooked it up. He knew I had a crush on her so he made us partners in a project so I had her number. When it came time to ask her to prom, I used to call her a bunch of times and hang up. So one Friday, a month before the prom, I called her and she picked up and asked if I wanted to go over the project. I asked her if she was going to the prom she said she guess but no one really asked her yet. So I asked if she wanted to go? She asked, “With you?” I was like man,  guess that’s a no,  but she said of course. I was stunned. About ten minutes later,  my good friend, our mutual friend called all excited, “you finally did it!” It was a big deal. She won prom queen that night I wasn’t on the ballot for king so I didn’t win.   But it didn’t matter who the king was, I was the most popular dude. We had a good night. After prom we went to an after party, then to breakfast then straight to Great adventures.

• What are you working on these days?

Now I DJ Friday nights from 12 am to 2 am on Power 105.1. I DJ up to 3-4 clubs a night. In the past I have traveled all over the world and I plan on traveling again very soon.


• What is your favorite part about being a 105.1 DJ?

My favorite part about being a 105.1 DJ is being responsible for breaking records. I love playing new records. I’m known as the ladies DJ because I play a lot of girl friendly music. Another one of my favorite parts about Djing is having friends from 10-15 years ago call me because they hear a DJ Will on the radio and says it sounds like me. It’s a great feeling to reunite.

• What would your advice be for the Class of 2012?

Be safe! Be sure to continue onto college. Even people with college degrees can’t find jobs but a High school diploma and a GED won’t bring you anywhere in life.

• Tell us about some of your favorite hobbies, pastimes or charitable organizations that you’re involved with.

My favorite hobby is chess. I am an avid chess player. I ran a chess club twice a week at my daughter’s school. I also work with Hale House Center in Harlem, NY. It’s a child-centered and family-focused program dedicated to building better future for children and families in their community. It’s a great program they take care of children who have been abandoned or mothers have a history of substance abuse. I participate in the gala and fundraisers events they host. One of their events is Bikers for Babies. Motorcycle crews drop of truck loads of diapers for babies. I teach chess there as well.

Thanks for sharing DJ Will!

Q & A with Miss New York Teen USA 2012, Sabrina Mastrangelo!

3 Apr

We recently had a chance to speak with the 2012 Miss New York Teen USA, Sabrina MastrangeloSabrina is currently a sophomore in Bellmore, NY and hopes in the future to study broadcasting. Her dream career is to become a news anchor, but for now she enjoys participating in her school plays and plans on studying journalism.

Name: Sabrina Mastrangelo
Age: 15
Hometown: Bellmore, NY
Grade Level: Sophomore in high school.

  • Have you already attended the Prom?

No I have not.

  • What are you looking forward to the most?

Definitely looking for a dress!! I think that is the most exciting part! I already have the style in mind: a strapless mermaid dress. Since I am on the shorter side, a mermaid dress looks best on me and will flatter my figure.

  • Do you plan on attending after prom?

Yes I do.  Last year at my high school, the seniors all went to a bounce house after prom. First they changed into their after prom dresses and jumped all night long in inflatable houses! I thought that was a fun idea and hope to do that when I am a senior!

  • What made you try out for this Pageant?

I was never involved in pageants as a child. I always knew I wanted to compete in one, but it never occurred to me I could compete in a teen pageant since they are not usually televised. Once I became aware of the huge pageant world, I entered my first pageant and competed for the Miss New York Teen USA 2011 crown. I placed in the top 20 in my first pageant ever! I then continued and won the Miss Long Island Teen Pageant in August of 2011. After Miss Long Island, I was set to compete for Miss New York Teen 2012 and I won!

  • Do you have a favorite memory from the Pageant?

Definitely winning! I had only competed in two pageants before Miss New York Teen USA so this win is a huge accomplishment to me. Besides winning, meeting all the girls was something I will never forget. We become so close during pageant weekend and consider each other to be “pageant sisters.” If I had to pick one part of the pageant I did not like, it would be missing out on the opportunity to say goodbye to all of my new “sisters.” After I was crowned, I was bombarded with interviewers and photographers wanting pictures, so I was unable to really get to talk to the girls after the show. We all still keep in touch on Facebook though!

  • What advice would you give girls your age on “following their dreams”?

You never know what you can accomplish until you try it. I never in my wildest dreams thought that I could ever be a state queen. I went into my first pageant having no experience and it turned out great! Taking that one risk led me to receive two titles in the past six months! My advice to all girls would be to never give up and give everything a shot! You never know what can happen or what you may fall in love with!

  • What are some of your go-to beauty products that would be a good recommendation for Prom Night?

Well, I actually have an entire Youtube channel dedicated to beauty! You should check it out!

Some of my favorite products are Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, Benefit’s “They’re Real” Mascara, and Bobbi Brown or Ulta gel eyeliner! All of these are perfect for any pageant or prom night!  Anything Mehron is perfect for stage performances and for that extra dramatic effect.

Fun Facts about Sabrina:

1.      One of Sabrina’s favorite stores is Bebe and BCBG but, for the best shopping experience malls and department stores are the best because they have a little bit of everything!

2.      Along with winning Miss Long Island Teen, she got to train with her pageant director in preparation for the state pageant. One great tip she learned was to pretend there’s a string pulling up your head and you’ll stand taller!

3.      She wants to be an anchor woman/ TV host in the future!
