No One Gets to Where They Are Alone, Amanda Nguyen
After hearing the news of her Nobel Peace Prize nomination, Amanda Nguyen remembers how grateful she felt to express her voice and have a platform.
- When I found out I was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, it was like lightning went through me. I think my eyes kind of dilated. It was a shock. But I also felt incredible humility, you know? How could one have ever guessed, from the very beginning, that this is where it could have gone, and did go? I also felt just incredibly grateful and lucky. Because there are so few activists who ever get a chance to have a voice. To fight, to win, and then to be credited for it. You know? And I am just so grateful to the army of people who have supported me. Because no one gets to where they are alone.
