About Me

Inspiration can strike anytime and for me it was while watching 'The Queen of Katwe'.

Based on a true story, it tells the remarkable tale of one man who changed the course of many children's lives by teaching them to play chess.

It sounds like a small act of kindness but for these destitute children living in slums in Katwe, Uganda who didn't have many options and for whom the future looked bleak, it changed their lives and the lives of their families. It is a story of hope.

I want to hear more stories like that. I want to tell stories like that. So that is what this blog is about.

It is a platform to tell stories of those who beat the odds, of people who are doing amazing things in their communities and of people who use the difficulties and tragedies in their own lives to help others.
