“I was terrified someone was going to walk up and start attacking me, harassing me, push me to the tracks, or slash me with a knife.”
“Last weekend someone set a 29 yr old Asian woman’s backpack on fire in the train around Ktown. I’m done taking the goddamn train while these hate crimes are going on and EVERYONE F****** TURNING A BLIND EYE. And so should you.”
Maddy went on to say that she’s been living in New York City for 10 years, and she was a student through most of that.
She knows what it’s like to walk home or take the subway because you can’t afford to pay for a car.
“I’m putting down $2000 and reimbursing you until I run out of funds/donations, and I’m doing this IN GOOD FAITH that you actually need it.”
“Don’t tough it out girl. I know being Asian means you’re not used to asking for help. But right now It’s not worth it. Take a cab, for me. So we see 1 less headline,” Maddy said.
What Maddy so generously did inspired other people to donate to her cause, and she currently has raised $102,093 in just 2 days!
