A student reporter who made headlines when he interviewed former President Barack Obama has passed away at the age of 23.
Damon Weaver reportedly died of natural causes on May 1, his sister Candace Hardy told the Palm Beach Post. At the time of his death, he had been studying communications at Albany State University in Georgia.
Weaver was only 11 years-old when he spent ten minutes interviewing Obama in the Diplomatic Room on Aug. 13, 2009, asking questions that focused primarily on education. The young reporter specifically asked about school lunches, bullying, conflict resolution and how to succeed.
During the interview, Weaver asked Obama to be his “homeboy,” saying then-Vice President Joe Biden had already accepted.
