Dear President Tessier-Lavigne,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, social justice, and diversity. In these core values or subjects, I like to learn the need for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, have diversity to help accept people who are different or come from different background, have education reform to make learning a better tool for society, and many others. President Tessier-Lavigne, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 11th President of Stanford University to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as President of Stanford University, I like on how you are a strong supporter along with an advocate of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights and working to make Stanford University a better place to reduce discrimination to help protect minorities, women, and people with disabilities. Provide accommodations to students with disabilities to help assist them on learning like extra time on exams or have educational software to help them improve comprehension, implement more tutoring services to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and expand more liberal arts classes (arts, history, humanities, and basic classes) to help make education diverse common sense for education reform. Another thing that I like about your work as President of Stanford University is how you support hiring women, minorities, and people with disabilities to work for the college, support expanding on more research programs in science, medicine, and environmental to find ways to use them to help improve society, and continue to provide scholarships to help students who come from low-income families or who can’t afford tuition or have supplies for their classes, advocate for immigration reform to help immigrants, dreamers, or refugees from being oppressed while help give them an opportunity to get an education. Also I like about how you give speeches like emphasizing the need for more diversity in society including education to help accept people who are different or come from a different background, a strong need for more research programs to help find ways to turn learning different subjects to help make an impact on society, and strongly express the importance of reducing bullying including bigotry.
President Tessier-Lavigne, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your role as President of Stanford University gives me motivation to continue to learn history, social justice, and diversity. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have education reform to make learning a better tool, have diversity to help accept people who are different or come from a different background, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in society, diversity, and education. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support with advocate for Civil Rights, push for education reform, and many others. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn history including social justice and diversity. I was wondering if you could please share with me what it is like being President of Stanford University. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to improve society, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to make a great impact on society.
