Dec-27-17  diagonal: <KibBlitzing> with WIM Luciana Morales Mendoza from Peru:

<True or false: Chess is primarily a social activity.>

<False! It is a war game and a question without answer--otherwise the line "WHITE TO PLAY AND WIN” would be always found under the diagram of the initial position.>


<Name a skill that benefits you only in chess but not in life!>

<I can concentrate and remain silent for hours when playing chess but in real life I cannot make use of this skill since I *need* to talk>

Full interview:

Morales Mendoza has played in the Peruvian team in the Women's Chess Olympiad in 2002, 2006 and 2010. She was also the captain of team Peru in the Chess Olympiad held in Turin 2006. Inactive at FIDE rated chess since 2013.

Morales Mendoza studied Government and Communication at the University of Texas, U.S. at Brownsville from 2007 to 2011. She also completed a master's in Public Policy and Management in Brownsville in 2014. (Source: Wikipedia)
