the story of
Dr. Kingsley R. chin
Dr. Kingsley R. Chin was born in the tiny seaside town of Buff Bay, Jamaica to a single teenage mother, Loleta L. Blythe, and was the eldest of four children. Recognizing his situation early in life, he focused on developing his athletic talents across multiple sports while being diligent at academics. It was important for him to set goals that could help him get ahead in life and to have contingency plans.
He excelled as a student-athlete and was rewarded with a starting position at center forward on the Jamaica Junior National Soccer Team in international competition. He got the exposure and the break he needed to leave Jamaica whena he was recruited to play varsity soccer at the then #1 ranked Columbia University in New York City. He took advantage of this opportunity to graduate with a dual degree in engineering and mathematics, hold membership in the prestigious Eta Kappa Nu electrical engineering honor society, serve as elected senior class president, and become Ivy-League Player of the Year in varsity soccer.
