Daily Chess Musings: Chess Chat with Sofia Doroshenko

Greetings Chess Players. My name is Chris Torres and this is my daily chess musing for Tuesday, March 2, 2021.

On The Daily Chess Musings Blog I have a running series of articles called Chess Chats where I conduct written interviews with interesting members of the chess community.

Today, I posted a new Chess Chat that is definitely worth checking out. Daily Chess Musings club member Sofia Doroshenko from Chicago is currently an 18-year-old senior in high school who plans to achieve a Woman Candidate Master title to help increase outreach in under-resourced communities and further the movement to improve chess literacy and excellence amongst women.

Trust me when I say that Sofia is definitely talented enough to pull it off. She even defeated me during my annual chess Simul on my Birthday. So because Sofia Doroshenko is an up and coming star that wants to inspire other female chess players, it is extra fitting to publish her story during Women’s History Month.
