2018 U20 National Girls Champion
Playing her very first National tournament in the year 2017, Temitope has grown to become one of the finest chess-playing young girls in the country at age 14. She had a remarkable 2018, where she finished 1st position (female section) at the 1st Malogy U-20 National Chess Tournament, and at the 2nd Edition of The OSFI Board Games Tournament, defeating boys in the process. She also represented Lagos at the National Youth Games, where she also came home with a medal, which would reward her with her first international exposure, as she was selected as one of the members of the Nigerian teams to represent the country at The West African U-16 Team Chess Championship, where she was unbeaten and finished the event with a perfect 6/6 score, helping her team to finish second, just behind another Nigerian team consisting of the nest three (3) young talents that would be mentioned. With these numerous accomplishments in so little a time, the #GoForANigerianChessGrandMaster team believes that she would be invaluable to the success of the program.
