“So my sister told me the night before about [the women’s march]. So, I thought it was going to be in front of Donald Trump’s building. But I realized how big the thing was actually going to be. So, I get there and I saw everyone from LHS and there’s like 20,000 people there and I was like oh my gosh, this is humongous. It was just such an amazing event and I felt called to do things for my causes. I didn’t just go there for the Women’s March, I went there for the environment, for immigration, and not just to protest Trump, but to spread unity throughout…I felt wanted. I felt like this movement is going to make a change and it was a whole different feeling. When I came home, a lot of people didn’t like that I went because it was a women’s march and I’m a guy. So, I felt like a guy has a right to stand up for what he believes in as much as anyone else. It changed everything. It changed my whole outlook on life.”
