Mind Mover: Will



Meet William Derek Rozee, aka Will. Born in Kowloon, Hong Kong to an English father and a Filipino mother, he, like the rest of the Mind Movers, has more to him than meets the eye.  A BS Biology graduate from the University of the Philippines Manila, Will has a deep passion for the natural sciences, filling him with a wonder and sense of awe akin to a boy on Christmas Day. His scientific inspirations are Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin, scientists who are crucial to some of the most important paradigm shifts in scientific history, moving scientific minds like the way he seeks to do now. Aside from those, he also admires Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking, and Richard Dawkins, scientists who worked tremendously hard to make knowledge in the sciences more accessible to the human race.  Will enjoys reading popular science books, with The Blind Watchmaker by Dawkins as his personal favorite. He also spends hours on end watching videos on Youtube, ranging from TEDTalks to music videos and from books reviews to comedy skits.
Will is an avid fan of science fiction, with the Star Wars Saga and the Back to the Future Trilogy as his favorite movies. In addition, he adores shows which tweak his neurons, such as Sherlock and Doctor Who. He’s a music lover, who appreciates music ranging from the mellowness of Beethoven, to the loudness of heavy metal. In addition, he enjoys playing bass and guitar in his spare time. He also enjoys playing pool and jogging, and he supports the association football team Arsenal F. C.
Will embodies the phrase YOLO, living life to the fullest and using it to experience as many things as he possibly can and somehow, in some small way, trying to help make the world a better place.
