Growing up in a large Jamaican-American family from Springfield, Massachusetts I learned of the emphasis to be educated in a community stifled by systematic racism at a young age.
One of the issues that I am most passionate about, now more than ever, is the discrimination for women with disabilities.
Growing up as the daughter of Vietnamese immigrants in the U.S., I have been very concerned about the recent anti-immigrant sentiments in the U.S.
I am attending this convention because I believe in my ability to make a difference and I know that Platform will empower me to do so.
