I did raise enough money to attend thanks to huge support from my community and from people around the world.
5 draws and 2 wins of 11 games. Much more than I could have expected!
I had the most amazing time, and did so much better than I thought. With a zero FIDE rating when I entered, I now have a FIDE rating of 1503. I really want to study hard now and play more chess!!
NEXT YEAR THE WORLD QUALIFIER IS:
OTTAWA JULY 10-12, followed by the
CANADIAN OPEN JULY 13-20 also in OTTAWA
I would really like to go to these tournaments and now
I am trying to raise the funds to go.
I would also like to see more girls play chess. There are only a few girls playing chess at the tournaments I attend in Vancouver, BC Canada and hope that this will change.
I am fortunate now to have a foundation the BC GIRLS CHESS FOUNDATION www.bcgcf.com
Thank you everyone for helping me take these opportunites, to follow my dreams!
