Sunday Finance: What are your thoughts on winning the Prime Minister Youth Award in Excellence?
Wilson: The Prime Minister's Youth Award is the highest honour bestowed on Jamaicans between 15 and 24 years of age. This is a major achievement for Team eZines. Receiving this award is a sign of confidence from the country that we're on the right track. It is also an avenue for me to inspire aspiring entrepreneurs, and avenue for me to show them that it is possible. This award is also a motivation for me to continue aggressively into growing the company.
