What is "because I said I would"?

Additional Information on Our Speaker: Amanda Messer

At a young age Amanda learned the effect that promises broken have on relationships. Her father struggled with addiction and was not good with keeping his commitments to his little girl. Amanda was drawn to helping start because I said I would knowing that there are other people whose lives are deeply affected by broken promises. Amanda uses her deep personal connection to promises to inspire and motivate her audiences to become better with their commitments. Watch Amanda’s story through her TEDx talk.
