 First intimation of success
"Now the tornament has passed 10 round. Joanne is the only one won 9 games. 4 other girls are 8 wins. The last round will be on the day after tomorrow. If Joanne wins, she will be qualified as a pro. If she lose, the result will be hard to say. However, she is very close to success now."
Received 23 July
- "This is really a historic day for Australian Go. Joanne Missingham, a 14 yo girl born in Brisbane, has "climbed Everest" by passing the tough Chinese Pro Exam for Women. Joanne becomes the very first ever Australian citizen to achieve this high goal.
- "Joanne moved to Taiwan at an early age, and learned go at age six.. Two years later she passed the 1 dan milestone. Despite her other time consuming interests of gymnastics and swimming, Joanne progressed in go, and in 2006 became the Taiwan Female National Champion.
- "In 2004 she moved to San Diego with her family, and was without a go teacher. She continued to play on the internet and achieved 9 dan rankings on TOM and IGS, playing as Jia Jia (her "Chinese" name is Hei Jia Jia).
- "I personally congratulate Joanne on her achievement and also offer congratulations on behalf of the Australian Go community.
- "We are looking forward to following Joanne's career and hope that she may have some future involvement in Australian go."
