National Master Isaiah Kim
The Bay Area has always been my home, and I grew up in Castro Valley. My interest in chess started when I was 12, and I discovered When I eventually entered my first over the board tournament, I really enjoyed the competitive aspects of the game, and I found the chess community to be very friendly and welcoming. Apart from being great fun, my chess journey has taught me important lessons about critical thinking, mental concentration, and sportsmanship. Having just achieved my National Master title, I plan to take a break from tournaments and focus more on teaching chess while I transition to college at UC Berkeley.
