Somdatta Basu

Teaching Assistant, 2017

Hello! My name is Somdatta and I began learning chess from my parents when I was only five years old. I instantly fell in love with the game. Currently, I compete in as many tournaments as possible and take chess lessons to improve my game! In addition to chess, some of my hobbies include reading, competitive swimming, and playing the piano. However, chess remains my favorite way to exercise my brain and have fun at the same time!
