Letters from Vietnam, Amanda Nguyen
Nguyen describes how moved she is by letters of gratitude from Vietnamese women after her Nobel Peace Prize nomination.
- One of the most moving messages that I got was after I was nominated, and this Vietnamese American woman had written in saying that she had to translate Nobel Peace Prize for her parents. To which I was like, what does that translate to in Vietnamese? It's just the small things that make it real. But getting letters from women in Vietnam as well, and hearing about what it means to them to see someone who looks like them talking about issues that are difficult to talk about, and winning. That has been incredibly moving to see.
