My grandmother and father introduced me to chess at a young age, but I did not pursue it. They very rarely played chess, but I received a chess board as a present, and I was taught the basics. I took to playing chess and aiming to improve my game in March 2010. You could say that I started playing chess then. My first tournament was a junior tournament, in which I lost all my games.

Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said. "One can't believe impossible things." "I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." — Lewis Carroll, in Through the Looking-Glass.
