Eileen Dong: “In the Asian culture, we operate by the honor and shame system. What happens in the family, stays in the family, even if you are a victim. I have become the voice for the voiceless and a hope ambassador to show them the light at the end of the tunnel. I will keep fighting until everyone is free. I hope to become United Nations Goodwill Ambassador.”
