Wilson discovered chess late in high school to his chagrin. In his first year of play, he competed in the 2019 Ontario High School Championship, scoring 3/6 in the Beginner section. He also finished 1st in the Amateur section of 2019 Mississauga Chess Club Championship. Although still an amateur player by all means, Wilson enjoys being fascinated by the complexity and beauty of the game. It is not uncommon for him to procrastinate by watching an ongoing professional chess tournament.
Currently, Wilson is a first year computer science student at the University of Toronto. His interests go beyond his projected program of study, including subjects from linguistics to political science. This diversity can also be seen in his extra-curricular involvement with student associations such as UTLEI and UTAMA.
While serving as Communications Director of HHCC for 2021, he hopes to learn a lot from the club’s senior members and to help contribute to the club’s legacy. Expanding the club’s outreach and recruiting new members has become difficult during this trying year, but he promises to do his best to support the club.
