Before I started playing chess, I thought it was only for the senior people because they were more interested in chess than the younger ones. When my mum signed me up for chess it was quite boring at the beginning but when I started doing it even more , I got so interested in it that I couldn’t stop doing. It cause I knew deep down in my heart that I want to be one of the chess champions in Kenya.
It is my passion to be a very great chess champion and I am relying on my chess Coach Brian Kidula who also believes that one day I would be participating in great chess championships around the world. When my former chess tutor introduced me to him I was at first scared but I finally got to know him. We got to know each other very well and understood each other.
There were times when he told me about how chess started. Once someone told me that I should do things if I really had the passion to do it, I told them how I really had the passion to be a chess champion. I also learned that chess makes me think ahead, it also makes you concentrate and be serious and stop joking around.
I’m really thankful to God for all the energy he has given Tutor Brian enough to teach children, parents and seniors chess whether they have learnt it or not. I really don’t take it for granted and I pray that he may live long because of the encouragement he gives his students. I would like him to know that I am relying on him to make me a champion. I love you Coach Brian and you are the best tutor in the whole world!!
