Kibwe Trim once played for Trinidad and Tobago national basketball team and for a number of years played professionally in Asia.
Today Trim has retired from professional basketball but he is using his experience to help students in Trinidad and Tobago to follow the path to success. Last month Trim launched his first book at his alma mater St Mary’s College located in Port of Spain, Trinidad. The title of the book is “From Nerd to Pro”
When interviewed by Trinidadian newspaper Newsday, Trim said he always held a burning desire to encourage young people to see their dreams realised despite their situation.
He went on further to state,
“I am a proud St Mary’s College old boy, so that is the reason we are here. Anytime I can do something in Trinidad, I always gravitate towards St Mary’s first, because they gave me the foundation to do everything I have done in life.”
