Because Girls Rock at Chess!

About Sophie

I am a 9 year old chica who loves chess (and math). When I was in Kindergarten, I first learned chess in school and took an instant liking to it. I soon found a chess coach (whom I call Master Mike) and started competing in chess tournaments in NYC and NJ, near my house. I have been competing since then and have found that these tournaments are mostly filled with boys. It’s not that I don’t like boys or feel nervous competing with them, BUT I have found that many girls don’t seem to be as enthusiastic about chess the way I am. My goal for Chess for Chicas is to get girls EXCITED about chess and show them what an amazing, fun, and engaging activity it is. Stay tuned for my weekly blogs!

To get girls excited about chess, I thought I’d create my own pink chess boards. “Classic” chess boards can look so plain…so I thought, why not add a “girly” touch? If you are interested, you can purchase one of my chess boards.
