ON THE ROAD TO 2000
I din't get the opportunity to learn chess as a kid. I started playing back in 2015 at the age of 22. On my first account, I hit a low of 655 in blitz. I din't even know what "en-passant" was. While watching the 2016 world chess championship and cheering for Chessbrah in the first season of the pro chess league, what was nothing more than a hobby, quickly grew into a passion. When I got to around 1050 in blitz, I decided to set a goal of reaching 1600. A goal I never truly taught I would accomplish. Nor did I ever taught I would created my own league or help my country's online national team become a stronger and close-knit team in live chess. Chess gave me a confidence I really needed. It became a ladder to climb out of a deep hole. And so with this new belief in myself, I'm setting the goal of reaching 2000 in blitz. Lot's of work ahead
