Warren told a personal anecdote relating to her mother’s reaction to the end of her first marriage after she was asked by a 17-year-old girl about a time when she didn’t feel accepted, according to video recorded by ABC News.

“I was wondering if there was ever a time in your life where somebody you really looked up to maybe didn’t accept you as much?” the voter asked Warren. “And how you dealt with that?”

“Yeah,” Warren responded after pausing for a moment. “My mother and I had very different views of how to build a future.”

“She wanted me to marry well, and I really tried, and it just didn’t work out,” the senator added. “And there came a day when I had to call her and say, ‘This is over. I can’t make it work.’ And I heard the disappointment in her voice. I knew how she felt about it.”

“But I also knew it was the right thing to do,” she added, after fighting back tears.

Warren and the young voter then embraced.
