AUTHOR OF NEW BOOK "LET'S PLAY SHESS" RESPONDS TO HIGH DEMAND FOR SPANISH TRANSLATION INTO NEW VERSION "JUGUEMOS SHESS" WHICH EMPOWERS HISPANIC AND LATINO WOMEN TO CHANGE FROM PAWN TO QUEEN
Wendy Oliveras' new book Let's Play SHESS published by AuthorHouse (a subsidiary of Penguin Publishing) is being translated into Spanish as a result of a high demand from the Hispanic/Latino community, support by political leaders in the State of New Jersey, and business owners alike to help inspire, teach and motivate Hispanic and Latino girls and women to get out of poverty, gain confidence, and achieve success on a personal and professional level by playing chess (ajedrez).
(Jersey City) Let's Play SHESS and Juguemos SHESS encourages women of all ages and backgrounds to learn to play a fun game of chess and to transfer the acquired chess-playing skills into their real life plan and business development. Latina author Wendy Oliveras, a member of the United States Chess Federation (USCF), and Founder and CEO of Oliveras & Company, Inc., a legal search firm, wrote Let's Play SHESS after her legal recruitment business was hit hard during the economic downturn in 2008; it was her chess skills that got her through those tough times. As a result of writing Let's Play SHESS, Oliveras created SHESS Global Alliance, LLC. The demand for a Spanish version of Let's Play SHESS is being addressed and represents yet another contribution Oliveras makes to give back to her Hispanic and Latino community, as well as women worldwide.
Latina author Wendy Oliveras, 49, is the youngest of four children and proud daughter of parents who were born in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. She was born in Brooklyn, New York, raised in Manhattan, and is a resident of Jersey City for the past 20 years. Oliveras first learned to play chess when her dad (Papi) taught her at age 14. She took her chess-playing skills and transferred them into all aspects of her life, including her educational and professional endeavors. Oliveras holds a Master's degree with honors from The New School in New York City and President of the New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners (NJAWBO) Hudson County Chapter (2010-2012). Oliveras enjoys mentoring girls to believe in themselves; motivating women to start and manage their businesses; and inspiring them all to learn to play chess. Jugemos SHESS will teach Hispanic and Latino women to become SHESS players on their own battlefields, find the warrior inside themselves, make positive changes in their lives, set goals, and find the courage to face each day with confidence and strength.
Both versions of the new book Let's Play SHESS links the inherent lessons learned by playing chess and building successful strategies while transferring those chess-playing skills into all aspects of life. Regardless of the language, these skills include analyzing and solving problems with more logical clarity; strategic planning; pattern recognition; facing your fears; having confidence to make sound decisions; believing in yourself and achieving all of your personal and entrepreneurial aspirations.
Ruth I. Haring, President of the United States Chess Federation (USCF) supports the SHESS global movement for girls and women and provides the book's Foreword. Haring is a Life Member of the USCF; an International Woman Master, 1975; and member of the Executive Board of the USCF. Haring was a frequent participant in the US Woman's Championships in the 1970′s and 80′s and is a five-time US Olympic Chess Champion team member, winning the Bronze on Board 4 in 1976 and representing the USA in the 1976 Women's Interzonal and various other international events. Haring also serves on the CalChess (Northern California Chess Association) Board of Directors and she was appointed in 2009 as the Head of the US Delegation to FIDE (the leading World Chess Federation organization).
Haring says "A girl who is a chess player will also most likely share her opinion in classes without being shy or embarrassed and make decisions without deferring to others. In business these skills we have discussed are also critical skills for being successful." Haring also says "Let's play SHESS will inspire and motivate girls and women worldwide to transfer the chess-playing skills into their everyday activities and business development."
