"Chess let me to visit many countries and cultures and chess pieces shaped my mind how a manager should threat and react in order to be prosperous. All these insightful journeys drives me to a career I love besides chess, which is Industrial Systems Engineering and Management.

I might not be an active chess player compared to when I was a junior, however, instead I am a full-time "chess thinker!”, since as an engineer/manager scholar you need to organise the flow behind the firms harmoniously to produce great products or services and this procedure resembles the pieces in a chess game that you must move your pieces aptly in order to win the game.

Chess is beyond a sedentary sport and I believe everybody can reap the benefits of it in the realm they need."
