Stefan Hosein

Engineer

From books to brilliance, read on to learn more about this NASA scholarship winner whose journey to California changed his life forever.

"There was no one person or event that inspired me ­ it was an amalgamation of many people and events. When I was young my parents instilled in me a drive to not only believe in myself, but also not to limit myself. As I grew up, I admired Steve Jobs with his stringent work ethic and belief in himself; I remember he said 'innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower' this was the moment I decided that I would try to be a leader for the youths of Trinidad and Tobago. When the NASA opportunity arose, I knew I had to apply to fulfil these aspirations and to develop Trinidad and Tobago in a very tangible way."
