My name is Karolina Fortin and I love shogi. In fact, I love shogi so much I became the first professional shogi player from outside Japan. I only knew about the game at age 16, then I spent most of my twenties in Japan training and playing professionally. After achieving LP 1 dan I have retired from active play, now I concentrate on shogi promotion and my new family life.

During pandemic I have started streaming online under nickname Shogi_Harbour, but soon I have realized we need a community to connect shogi players, so I created Shogi Harbour Discord. Today there are many talented players and streamers who share their passion for the game everyday.

On I hope to continue making new shogi content and organize shogi activities or tournaments that will make people excited to continue learning and playing.

I hope to spread the amazing game of shogi around the world.
