The child of refugees, Amanda adds an authentic voice to the issues refugee families face around the world:

“As the daughter of Vietnamese boat refugees, I recognize firsthand that global women’s empowerment depends first and foremost on safety–safety to move about freely in and out of public spaces–regardless of their circumstances. Rise is working every day to ensure women’s safety across the globe, and I am proud to stand as a Public Advocate for Carry the Future and use this platform to elevate the voices of refugee women around the world.”
