Lillian Wu


My name is Lillian Wu and I currently am a 3kyu (AGA). I also attend GNNHS and am in 9th grade. Unfortunately, due to the amount of work that comes with high school, I don't have as much time to play Go or solve life and death problems. Still, I manage to dedicate at least some time in my week on this. Other than playing Go, I also enjoy browsing the internet, sports, music, and more.
