I was involved in weekly discussions involving ethical questions. The discussions exposed me to different perspectives that I wouldn't have otherwise heard and I developed better listening and communication skills from the discourse.

As president I organized meetings and lectures. Club members would come play matches against their classmates and learn new openings/tactics in lectures that I lead. I still play in tournaments and maintain a rating of 1575 which places me in the top 7% of competitive chess players globally.
