When Sherwyn Wilson was growing up, his family always told him to shoot for the stars, but he aimed higher and he kept aiming high, even as high as Harvard University. Now, the Harvard finance degree graduate is aiming to give back to his country.
Wilson's passion is for finance and developmental economics. During his two years at Harvard, he spent at least 80 per cent of his time in research and working on issues designed holistically for the future development of Trinidad and Tobago.
His research interest concluded with his graduation thesis on the topic, “The impact of falling oil prices on the foreign currency reserves of Trinidad and Tobago”, which was designed for the ministry of finance. His hope is that he will work on some of the economic and social challenges plaguing this country.
