The story of 16-year-old Ugandan chess star Phiona Mutesi who is beating the odds and making waves on the international chess scene. Also, we hear her story will be made into a Disney film “Queen of Katwe” I just hope that the film focuses on her as a person rather than exploit slumdog tourism as this CNN article has done.
