They said girls don't play chess.
I fell in love with chess the first time I saw it. My brother was playing it and it was like a blitz. Rapidly trading pieces, planning ahead and if you make one bad move, you lose. I started learning it with my brother and have never looked back. And it was fun when I won against him.
In 2012, Youth festival had the Chess Tournament at my university where I applied and they told me it's not for girls. No one decides what is a girl's game and what's not.
I can still beat you.
