I had many interesting opportunities over the past six months where I could incorporate Chess United into the community. I served as Tournament Director at several scholastic chess tournaments. I helped teach a weekly chess club at a local elementary school. I worked with both the Marco Island Youth Chess Club and the Marco Island Senior Chess Club helping members with tactical skills and playing Simul games. I assisted GM Yury Shulman with two summer chess camps. I taught chess to local kids from the Barrington Council for the Gifted and Talented at their annual family game night. I continue to work with Dr. Kiran Frey and Chess Without Borders on Project Meher/MGCC.
All of these endeavors have been extremely rewarding to me.  My goal has been to spread chess knowledge, enable socialization crossing generations, and to inspire other to serve.

The impact of my work has been phenomenal both for me and those that I served. I was able to donate proceeds of my wins, devote my time and become aware of people who are not as fortunate as me.
