2018-10-31_09.26.47

Hi My name is Jeffrey. I started learning chess at the Seneca Hill Chess Club when I was six years old and learned there ever since. In the Seneca Hill Chess Club, I got an opportunity to improve my chess skill through chess lessons, games, and tournaments. During these years, I have learned a lot and improved a lot. I would like to thank Corinna and coaches at Seneca Hill Chess Club for helping me get to where I am today.

I love chess. Chess has become an important part of my life and also positively benefited my life. Chess has trained my mind and increased my concentration level. I have also made a lot of new friends through chess.

As a chess player, I am very excited to get the opportunity to represent Canada at the World Cadets Chess Championships (WCCC). To prepare for this event, I spend lots of time on chess everyday, analysing games, solving puzzles and practicing openings. In the WCCC, I will get a chance to play against some of the world’s strongest U12 chess players and learn something from them. The competitions in WCCC will be tough, but I will keep a smile on my face even I lose because I know that I will learn from my game. I will do my best to get a good result.

This year’s WCCC is my first international chess event, I certainly hope it won’t be my last one!
