Kim thanked the crowd, saying “I am grateful for the outpouring of support I have received from all of you. I am running to give back to this country that has given me so many opportunities that I would not have had elsewhere. I believe in the American Dream because I have lived the American Dream. I know it’s possible and I am running to make sure that all Americans, no matter their race, gender, or background, have the opportunity to succeed like I did. Every Californian deserves the same chance.”
