Gained WIM(Women Internationional Master) title —–Qiyu Zhou’s Brief Thank-you Note for Supporting her NAYCC Trip in Mexico , May 2015

I would like to thank all of you for your support, in particular, the Brantford Chess Club as well as  Ontario Chess association this time. Without your sponsorship I would not have been able to travel to Mexico , become the Under18 girls’ champion and gain the WIM title  in North American Youth Chess Championships held in Mexico, from May 27 to May 31 in 2015.

The tournament itself was quite well- organized, and even though I had a very bad start, I tried my best. The Mexican people were friendly, the accommodations were comfortable, and most importantly (for me) I got the WIM title :).  The Mexican organizers offered all the official players in each section free board and around $20(USD) in hotel subsidy per night. The hotel itself had plenty of green space, and there was no need to go outside. I played a lot of table tennis with the Mexican chess players, and made a lot of new friends. 

As usual, I will have to concentrate on my studies, and focus on the upcoming exams/summatives. My next goal is to achieve the WGM title in chess and to become a better pole vaulter. I want to thank everyone for the continuous support in making these goals come true!

    Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any
    tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Cheers
