In 2017, Tani Adewumi’s family came to the US from Nigeria as refugees –and in 2019, Tani won his division of the New York State Chess Championship. Since then, he’s been soaring through the world of chess and has been recently announced, at 10 years old, as America’s newest Chess Master –one of a very small group to have achieved such a title at such a young age.
