Queen of Katwe Event – Giveaway #1
QUEEN OF KATWE is an inspiring true story of a young girl named Phiona, who sold corn on the streets of Uganda who experiences a life altering experience when she is introduced to the game of chess. Confidence, determination along with the support of her family leads Phiona on a life altering journey as she pursues her new found dream of becoming an international chess champion. It's a story of overcoming the odds and finding your inner Queen.
When I was growing up my dad and I played chess a lot. I remember loving the fact that its not at all a game of chance, its a game of strategy. Because my luck sucks and I prefer to think my fate is in my own hands. I was president of the chess club in high school. I was in the mini's chess club when I was young. I just wish I had kept up with it. I barely remember any main strategies. This movie is going to be awesome. Some people think chess is boring but it is so not. Its like fighting a battle. Phiona said, “Chess is a game of fighting. These pieces are my Army.” I know the story and I know how amazing this girl is. I am lucky to be chosen to attend this event and lucky enough to have some great friends there that have put together this amazing giveaway.
