'Your inspiring speech at our Top Global Employers launch 2018 perfectly articulated what it means to stand up for your beliefs. Hearing you so eloquently express the need for our audience to have the courage to continue to work for global LGBTQ equality conveyed how important it is that we commit to achieving acceptance for all. Your speech inspired many people to think more critically and work harder to advance equality in their workplaces. The launch would not have been such a success without your contribution’
"Amazin has deeply engaged the Asian American and Pacific Islander LGBTQ community in Washington DC. In a city that whose political capital is national, she has made unique connections between local and international entities. On the day that the world observed International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia as well as seeing Taiwan become the first Asian government to recognize same sex marriage, and the US House of Representatives pass the Equality Act, Amazin joined the local community to celebrate our local Asian Pacific Islander Pride. Her unique perspective allows her to make these connections like few others and we need more voices like hers having impact."
