Topchess is here to make a positive difference in children's lives. Playing and learning chess has helped me overcome many of life's obstacles. When I was in primary school, I was a "C" student...struggling with my grades. Then chess came into my life. After learning chess, my grades went from C's to straight A's and I promise I have chess to thank for that. Chess gave me confidence, I learnt to take responsibility for my actions and most importantly it was so much fun along the way.
I believe through Topchess, I can give back to the community by sharing my knowledge and helping others to grow.
Based on my personal experience, I know that the benefits of playing chess have given me many great opportunities. I have made new friendships, improved my reaction time, strengthened my calculation and memory, cultivated my logic and reasoning, enhanced my mathematics and reading skills, and I learnt to truly think ahead. I use all of these strategies every single day...and like life, competitive chess can be challenging. But moving forward requires sacrifice and change....and change comes from embracing challenges.
Be consistent and never give up - checkmate, good game!
