Cast: Senator Ladda Tammy Duckworth; Chanel Akiko Kipper

Senator Ladda Tammy Duckworth candidly shares her journey from growing up in South East Asia as a multiracial America kid to representing the State of Illinois on Capitol Hill. One of only two AAPI senators, she reveals how supporting her struggling family when still a teen in Hawaii, to being shot down over Iraq in combat as an army pilot and officer, to motherhood, has impacted her advocacy and legislation choices particularly for disability, veteran and women’s rights.
