The beauty of chess is it can be whatever you want it to be. It transcends language, age, race, religion, politics, gender, and socioeconomic background. Whatever your circumstances, anyone can enjoy a good fight to the death over the chess board. – GM Simon Williams

After not eating for three days, Phiona Mutesi (The Queen of Katwe) followed her brother to the SOM Chess Academy, which was known to provide free meals to its attendants. Since then, chess has become the vehicle that took Phiona, now a Woman Candidate Master, all over the world.

The fact is, Chess uplifts.
