Resumen:

The Queen of Katwe: One Girl's Triumphant Path to Becoming a Chess Champion : Phiona Mutesi, is a 15-year-old girl born and raised in a miserable slum called Katwe in Kampala, Uganda. Phiona Mutesi is also one of the top chess players in the world. By the age of 11, in 2007, Phiona was her country's junior chess champion and at 15, her country's national champion. In September of 2010 she traveled to Siberia, just her 2nd time ever on an airplane, to compete in the Chess Olympiad, the world's most prestigious team chess event. While there, Phiona proved herself to be on par with the greatest players in the sport. Her goal is to one day become a grandmaster, the most elite title in chess, and to blaze a trail out of Katwe that other children in her chess community can follow. The Queen of Katwe is the ultimate underdog story.
