I’m Ethan, the 18 year old high school student who spoke before congress a few days ago! AMA!
Hey Reddit, glad to be back for my second AMA. You can find the first AMA HERE
My first AMA was addressing how my story blew up, and the strange place I was in with the news cycle placing attention on myself and my family. That’s a completely different situation than this senate hearing, and I figured we could address some of your questions in this post. So send them my way and I’ll try to answer as many as I can!
Also, HERES a picture from the testimony in my very dapper suit.
Edit: for those that don’t know what this is all about, I made a Reddit post a few months ago that blew up. From there, larger and larger articles and stories were written about me and my family. Eventually I spoke before congress on the importance of vaccines and the dangers of misinformation. You can find the full committee hearing HERE some examples of the coverage of the committee include
Edit: watching a school play and will be busy until intermission. Will come back and get some more questions done then!
Edit 2: I’m going to bed, and tomorrow I’ll try to answer some more questions as I go through them!
Edit 3: thanks for an awesome AMA Reddit! I’m 99% sure this is my last AMA, just because this story will probably die down from here. I loved being able to take this opportunity and create actual change (for those that don’t know, FB recently announced changes to crackdowns on anti-vaxx content). The link to that story is HERE. I love you guys and this community is amazing, thanks again!
