HAITI.- Chess Prodigy "Joshua Colas"

Congratulations Joshua!

Joshua Colas of White Plains New York is a chess champion, a prodigy whose ambition is to become one of the world’s best players. At age 12, Joshua became the youngest African-American chess master in history and this past weekend, he won the national chess championship for the second consecutive year.

In order for Joshua’s to achieve his goal of attaining the highest rank in chess, the family is asking for financial help. His family is running an Indiegogo campaign to cover the requisite tournament fees and travel costs. So far, they have raised just over $7,000 — but they only have until next week to raise a lot more. You can click on this link to donate.

As excited as I am to see this story being covered on so many media outlets, I do think the media should start referring to Joshua as the youngest Haitian-American future grand master since both Joshua’s parents were born in Haiti. I’m going to keep an eye on this story and hope we can help Joshua attain such an inspiring goal.
