Thank You for Fighting, Amanda Nguyen
It's the little interactions that remind Rise founder Amanda Nguyen who she is fighting for.
- I was in this Uber ride where the driver was this kind of big, intimidating guy. And he didn't really talk to me. But at the end of the ride, he saw that I was going to the United States Senate. And he asked me why. So I told him. And this once intimidating man just started crying. Tears just welled up in his eyes. And he turned to me and he said, my daughter is a rape survivor. And what you're describing, she went through something really similar. When he stopped the car, he said, can I shake your hand? Thank you so much for fighting for my daughter. Has anyone told you that they love you today? I love you. And I'll never forget that dad.
