Girl Escapes Slums Of Uganda To Become Chess Champion
Description:A teenaged girl, who started in the slums of Uganda and became one of the best chess players around, inspired students in San Diego Monday.
The game of chess has taught 16-year-old Phiona Mutesi of Uganda a lot about life.
“All I love about this game is that it involves planning,” said Mutesi. “It enables me to kind of figure out the best moves which is more like the same thing I do in the slums on a daily basis figuring out how to survive.”(2:08)
