I'm a 15-year-old teenager from Missouri. I was born in Italy, but right now I'm living in the US and hope to move to the UK when I'm older. My main hobbies in life are Digital Music Production, DJing, Chess, HTML coding, Kendama and most importantly a lover of Jesus Christ.
I have the USCF rating of 1795 making me the 93rd highest rated person in Missouri. I am currently the 3-years-running champion of my city, Rolla. I went to the Missouri Scholastic Youth Championship in Columbia this year and made 5th in the <9th grade division. I've also got to play a real Chess Grandmaster (GM Yury) a skittles game in a park in London, I lost of course. After the game he told me, ''You're bad, but I was expecting this.'' Ouch! I will have my revenge... Fast forward a year and: How I Beat a Grandmaster This is currently where my chess career is at right now.
I also own a free, online chess club called the A.R.C. (Atomic Rift's Club) It now has over 400+ members! I would really appreciate it if you could check that out, thanks!
I now own a $1,000 music studio and am going into digital music production (namely trance music). Of course I can't say I want to become a world-famous DJ and have nothing to show for it. Here's an original track by me. Please let me know what you think!
Sadly I cannot be anywhere near as active as I'd like with my chess club or music this second-half of 2016. Reason being, I've decided to make school a #1 priority because I'm a year behind and still hope to graduate early (so I can pursue my of dream of music early) and still get a part time job next year (that way I won't have to go into dept when I continue learning after high school). Thank you for understanding.
If you've made it this far into my bio you shouldn't mind me telling you, "God loves you and Jesus died for you." I was 2, or was it 3? Anyway, a long time ago I was in a horrific fire accident. It 3rd-degree-burned my whole body, burned my eyelashes off and melted my pajamas onto my vest. Doctor said I will never be able to feel with my fingers again. I do not tell you this so that will have have pity on me, I tell you this because it is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. You see, I should have suffered a lot more than I did in that accident, maybe even died. But God deliberately saved me. So whenever I begin to doubt that my life is even worth it, I just think back and remember that fire. It reminds me that I'm here for a specific reason. Therefore, I'm living life to the very fullest. "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." (1 Peter 2:9)
PS: I can feel just fine.
Thank you for viewing my page! I hope I didn't bore you too much.
