I won tickets to the inauguration after adding my name to a lottery list hosted by Senator Charles E. Schumer. About 150,000 people applied for the tickets, but I was one of the 300 lucky winners to have won. I used this opportunity to not only share my personal experience of the inauguration, but to share the stories of those who were in attendance to witness this pivotal moment in American history.
