Lansing, MI  48909-7514

Dear State Representative Chang,

My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in studying history and public policy.   The main reason I have a strong interest in studying these subjects is to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. The main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as State Representative in House District 6 to be very inspiring to me.

In your current role as State Representative in House District 6, on Civil Rights, I like your strong commitment to protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in public and education.  To protect the environment, I am very proud on how you are advocating and supporting the need to protect the environment like pushing funds for renewable energy to reduce addiction to oil with gas, express the need to make water clean for people to have access to, and support funds to help communities get the care they need to clean pollution.  I am proud of your commitment to be a strong advocate for women’s rights by expressing the need to expand health care coverage for women, protecting women’s right to choose, and supporting equal pay for women.  During May, I am very grateful on you worked with Asian Pacific American Legislative Caucus, Michigan Asian Pacific American Affairs Commission, and APIAVote-MI to help spread awareness about Asian Americans, Asians, Asians including Asian Americans with disabilities and helping educate people about their culture.

State Representative Chang, I have Autism and having Autism is difficult for me because I struggle on comprehending on learning different subjects including new subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights and be an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on Autism.   Also being an Asian American with a disability is hard for me because I get teased by some Asians along with some Asian Americans because I have a disability and they judged me on how I’m not perfect like them or fit well with others.  It is hard for me with a disability being put down by other people especially some Asians and some Asian Americans. However, your commitment to help spread awareness about Asian Pacific Islanders and helping advocate Asians and Asian Americans with disabilities really inspires me to be proud to be an Asian American with a disability and to continue being interested in their culture and even understand the importance of their awareness.  Your work as State Representative really helps me continue being inspired to continue learning public policy with history to help understand the need to make society better. My main future goal is someday teach people about the need to learn not to repeat the same mistakes with the need to improve society or work in public policy to help create good common sense ideas to help society be a better place. My letter is also a gift to you for Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May to help recognize Asians including Asian Americans like you who make a great difference for society,

State Representative Chang, I strongly believe that you made a great difference in your current role as State Representative in House District 6. I’m very proud on how you work really hard to advocate for great ideas to make Michigan and history a better place. Another thing is I’m very proud on how you have the courage to help address the need for awareness of Asians and Asian Americans.  You have truly inspired me to work hard on my disability, be confident about being an Asian American with a disability, and continue my interest in history with public policy. I hope you enjoy my letter of appreciation and use it to help inspire you. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making a great difference, and inspiring me. I wish you well for the future and to continue pushing for great ideas to make Michigan a better place.


Matt Winick
