Ahmed is a second-year undergraduate student at the University of Toronto pursuing a specialist in computer science. Motivated to beat his best friend, he started earnestly playing chess in high school. Aside from chess, Ahmed has various other hobbies, such as swimming and ice skating.
As a Communications Director for the Hart House Chess Club, he hopes to promote chess across campus and create a welcoming environment for all players. Being a new player himself, he expects to use his background to improve the experience of novice club members. Regardless of whether HHCC operates in-person or online, he hopes to make the best of it.
