I started off playing chess because I was only 5 and could not sit still. Gradually, it became a competition for me. I participated in the B.C. regionals from grades 1-5, coming first in grades 1-4. I also have played in other tournaments such as the BYCC and CYCC, but didn't have much succes. I am looking forward to being able to go to the WYCC and coming first in the Canadian Chess Challenge. I have been 3rd 2 times and 4 th 2 times.
