Dear Fist Lady Obama,
My name is Matthew Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in history and public policy. These subjects are my favorite to learn because I like the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, have healthcare reform to help people with pre-existing conditions get the care they need, and many others. My future goal is to someday to teach people about the need to improve society and make history a better place. The main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I wanted to take the time to appreciate President Obama’s work including your role as First Lady and how both of you really helped benefit me along with inspiring me.
President Obama’s The American Recovery Act, a stimulus package helped me get into a job-training program called the B. Side of Arts at EMU college of Business in the summer of 2009. At the B. Side of Arts, I and other people in the program had lectures about how business works, worked on learning different job skills, and took classes ranging from writing to graphic design. I enjoyed my job-training program experience because I got paid and even developed job skills. As a result, The American Recovery Act helped me feel confident to learn new skills and it helped me get a full-time job. The Affordable Care Act that President Obama pushed for and signed into law helped me stay on my parent’s health insurance until I turn 26 since I’m 25 years old. First Lady Obama, I have Autism with a learning disability and having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I get teased, and struggle with communication when speaking with other people. Your support for people with disabilities’ rights and your husband President Obama’s support for protecting people with disabilities’ rights from being weaken with strengthening The ADA of 1990 really helped benefit me to get a higher education and to be protected from being discriminated based on a disability. To help move our country forward, I like on how you use your role as First Lady to help President Obama, Vice President Biden, and Dr. Jill Biden to launch Let’s Move program to work with different communities including medical professional to find ways to reduce childhood obesity with encouraging people to eat more nutrition to reduce diseases or encourage them to exercise and launching Joining forces a nationwide rally to call on Americans to help support veterans, service members, and their families on getting the care they need like education, medical care, ad employment opportunities.
You, President Obama, and the rest of the Obama Administration including Vice President Biden with his wife Dr. Jill Biden have done a great job working hard to make America a better place. Your work as First Lady including President Obama and the rest of his administration have helped benefit me to continue working hard on Autism, improve on my job-skills, have health insurance under my parents, continue working hard to eat more nutrition, and even continue my interest studying history so I can learn how to make a world a better place. Even though the news media, special interest groups, and both political parties refuse to work with you and the administration, I am very proud of how you, the rest of the Obama administration, and even President Obama work hard everyday and made a great positive impact on an American like me. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard in your role as First Lady of the United States, and inspiring me. I wish you well for 2016 to continue making a positive impact and helping President Obama with Vice President Biden to make society better.
Matthew B. Winick
