In May 2014, the NSCF hosted some inspiring events with Phiona Mutesi, the Ugandan girls chess champion whose true life story is told in the book The Queen of Katwe. Her story will also soon be told in a feature film from Disney.
Phiona visited with some of our schools to share how chess helped her overcome the most difficult life circumstances and how it can help our students too! Along the way, Phiona got to see a little of New York and even went to a Yankees game courtesy of one of the NSCF's board members. Phone's coach, Robert Katende, is an athlete as well as a chess player and he had a particularly good time!
