I have provided links to newspaper articles, videos, and blogs that showcase my achievements in chess and contributions to my community.

1. Debut as an author on US Chess:
 I am honored to be part of this wonderful organization and grateful for the opportunity to write an article on the 4th Annual ChessHelps tournament.
2. Arizona Republic:
 Even though the event had a mistake (saying that I attend Chandler High, I attend BASIS Chandler), the newspaper got the relevant details of the 4th Annual ChessHelps tournament right. A few folks who had not played chess in years showed up to support the cause after seeing this snippet. Thanks for posting this in print and online, Arizona Republic.
