This Plaridelian Cartoonist is also a chess wizard

Wearing two hats at the same time is something that Mark Angelo Fugen is in familiar territory. He is the current cartoonist of The Plaridelians, the official school organ of Plaridel National High School, Nagcarlan, Laguna.

Aside from that, he is also a chess player. Mark Angelo Parena Fugen was born on August 3, 1999 to Mr. Bernaldo C. Fugen and Ms. Corazon P. Fugen. He is the youngest in a brood of five. Currently, he is studying at Plaridel National High School  grade 10- Matulungin under his Adviser Ms. Teresa Suazo. 

He started playing chess tournaments in school when he was in grade 8. For Mark, the hardest part of playing chess is when he knows he is going to be mated by his opponent or when he loses his Queen. Aside from playing chess, he also likes to play basketball games. His idols in the NBA are Lebron James and Kyrie Irving of Cleveland Cavaliers. His inspiration in playing the game is his family.
