Queen of Katwe Giveaway


Queen of Katwe Event – Giveaway #1

QUEEN OF KATWE is an inspiring true story of a young girl named Phiona, who sold corn on the streets of Uganda who experiences a life altering experience when she is introduced to the game of chess.  Confidence, determination along with the support of her family leads Phiona on a life altering journey as she pursues her new found dream of becoming an international chess champion.  It’s a story of overcoming the odds and finding your inner Queen.

Girls!! Listen up… I mentioned in my last post that I’m heading on a press trip with Disney/ABC and this is it!!! I’m so pumped to attend the premiere and get the inside scoop on the movie from the stars themselves and from the real people who inspired the film. How dope is that?! 

Can I just share how amazing the universe is. At blogher I was registered to see an advanced screening of Queen of Katwe but had to cancel due to scheduling. I was so bummed because ever since I heard about the film I was hyped to see it. Then boom! I get this invite in my inbox. Even better than an advanced screening!!
