Following her win, Alexandra will visit Japan to compete at the Junior Othello World Championships in November. Between now and then, Alexandra will be mentored by representatives from the British Othello Federation in preparation for the event.

“I’m really excited about the trip to Japan,” said Alexandra. “I can’t believe I’ve won; Othello is my all-time favourite board game, so to win the chance to play in the Junior Othello World Championships is amazing.”

John Adams Leisure is providing sponsorship for Alexandra to attend the event, covering all expenses for her and her mum, who will accompany her on the trip to Mito at the end of October.
