The newest episode of Ladies Knight features host Jennifer Shahade in conversation with our new U.S. Women’s Open Champion, Megan Lee. Jennifer interviews Megan live from the Las Vegas Chess Festival. Lee is a 22-year-old graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design. In her conversation with Jennifer, she explains why she calls herself a “maker”, as well as a designer and photographer. Her projects have ranged from chairs to wallets to a chess set, and you can browse through her impressive portfolio at https://www.meleeproductions.com/.
