“Rollin is currently completing his senior year at Bermuda Institute, having attended the Bermuda Institute [B.I.] for ten years. During his studies at B.I.

“From an early age, Rollin realised that he had a passion for music. At just three years old, Rollin began learning how to play the drums.

“As the years passed he gravitated towards the piano after he was exposed to a Yamaha electric keyboard while visiting his family in Jamaica. Rollin began to explore other instruments with the help of his father who purchased him a guitar and an alto saxophone.

“Rollin is an active member of the Hamilton Seventh-day Adventist Church having been a member of the Hamilton Pathfinder Club and the United in Christ youth choir.

“Rollin also sings in an all male group called En Harmony. En Harmony has performed at Cabinet and the US Consulate and regularly at concerts, award shows, churches and schools throughout Bermuda.

“Whilst attending B.I., Rollin started playing rugby. In 2016 he was named the high school rugby league MVP. Further, Rollin is a member of the Bermuda under 17 and under 19 national rugby team.

“In the 2016, Rollin was nominated for the Bermuda Teen Service Awards in three categories: most improved, perseverance and performing arts. He was honoured for all three and was the recipient of the most improved award.

“Rollin aspires to attend university in the fall of 2016 to pursue a degree in Business Management and a minor in Sports Business Management or Music. Rollin is a humble servant of God that readily proclaims that he is a testament of God’s grace.”
