How has your life changed since you won one of the major prizes in the MCO?: 
My live has significantly changed! Taking lessons from a GM now, started my own business as well! Things are amazing.
How do your friends and family feel about you winning?: 
My family and friends are very proud of me, it's a very good feeling.
Why did you decide to play in MC#1?: 
I decided to play because I knew I was playing a lot stronger than what my rating was, so that gave me a big advantage. Not to mention I've played the HB global challenge so I had to play MC#1!
What did you most like about MC#1?: 
I liked the feeling of chess was taken like a very high class sport, because it is, and it was definitely recognized at the tournament.
What would you like to see different next year?: 
I would like to see more prize money next year!
Will you attend MC#2 again next year?: 
I'm 100% sure I'll be at the next MC#2.
