Yvonne White

Yvonne is a true chess aficionado, having first learned the game in ’09. Her passion for chess only grew when she attended a F.I.D.E. International training seminar in the Spring of 2010, earning her the title of Developmental Instructor. With the help of an International chess master, she began sharing her love for the game by teaching chess in after-school programs and summer camps throughout Greater Atlanta.

But her love for chess goes beyond just teaching it to kids. Yvonne discovered the full value of chess for all ages and started volunteering with a hospice company, where she played and taught chess with senior players, bringing joy and mental stimulation to those who need it most.

As a true chess ambassador, Yvonne is committed to growing the game within her community. She uses her expertise in marketing communications to promote the sport. With her unwavering dedication to this beautiful sport, Yvonne is making waves and changing lives one chess move at a time. πŸŒŸβ™ŸπŸŒŸ
