My name is Lateefah Messam-Sparks, 24, and I have been in the chess world for over 15 years. For the last six years, I have been teaching chess to juniors in schools and privately. Currently, I run a chess programme at a leading school in London. The school has been involved in many National Chess Championships, and we were awarded the British Chess Educational Trust Award from the English Chess Federation in 2016.
Teaching chess to juniors is a passion of mine. Chess teaches many life skills to both juniors and adults alike that they can apply in their lives; due to this I also work as an inspirational speaker in schools where I do talks about Chess, Life, Failure and Success. These talks mean that I can motivate other juniors to follow their passion no matter what their dreams may be and to forge their own paths. I am also, developing a programme named Chess Sparks.
