With very fond childhood memories of playing the game, Alyssa is thrilled to be returning to the world of chess in her capacity as Director of Communications where she hopes her past experiences coordinating Debate Tournaments will be of service to the club. Alyssa has been the Tournament Director of a number of events, each of which brought together over 200 competitors from across the province. Apart from chess and debating, her hobbies include the study of political and art history, and literature; she also enjoys playing tennis and piano, and skating.

Alyssa is a second-year student and UofT National Scholar pursuing a joint degree in economics and mathematics, along with a minor in history. She is honoured to be a part of the Hart House Chess Club this year!
