“Meeting Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili at the Batumi Chess Olympiad Opening Ceremony! He has very high respect for women in chess, and recognized the Georgian Women Chess Legends later on in the ceremony.
In each of these major events, I get to personally meet with Presidents and Prime Ministers of these countries. Chess Champions are highly respected in countless nations around the world. In the US, even in my hometown St Louis, I am treated like a disease. — in Batumi.” [emphasis added]
