Dear President Hirabowski III,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, social justice, and diversity. In these subjects, I like to learn the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have diversity to help accept people from different background, a need for education reform to make learning a better tool, and many others. President Hrabowski III, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as current President of University of Maryland, Baltimore County to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as President of University of Maryland, Baltimore County, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter and advocate for Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, expressing the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination in order to help protect minorities, people with disabilities, and women, and working to find ways to make University of Maryland, Baltimore County reduce discrimination. Expanding tutoring services to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, pushing for more accommodations to help students with disabilities like extra time on exams or have educational software to help improve their comprehension, and implementing more liberal arts (history, social justice, science and basic classes) to help make education diverse is common sense for education reform. To improve diversity I liked your approach on hiring women, minorities, and people with disabilities to work for the college, pushing for recruiting African Americans including minorities to come to University of Maryland, Baltimore County, partnering with minorities communities along with groups on campus to find ways to make University of Maryland, Baltimore County diverse for all students. Another thing that I like about your work as President of University of Maryland, Baltimore County is how you expanded more funds for research programs to help understand how different subjects can be beneficial to society and innovate STEM education to help encourage students along with minorities and women to develop interest in medicine, science, and technology. Besides your work as President of University of Maryland, Baltimore County I truly appreciate on how you are continuing to be a strong advocate for Civil Rights including people with disabilities rights, expressing the importance of diversity to help accept culture along with people coming from different background, and being a strong voice for African American communities.
President Hrabowski III, 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 inspire me to work hard on my disability. Also your story about how you and your friends joined the Children’s Crusade march for Civil Rights which resulted in being jailed for non-violent protest, helping to comfort your friends including the youth who were involved in the Children’s Crusade march when they including you face difficulties in the jail, and how you became more motivated to continue to campaign for equality, education, and excellence during the Civil Rights era helped me get interested in learning about the importance of the Civil Rights movement. Also on Youtube I enjoy listening to you about how being involved in the Civil Rights movement helped shaped your life to be very committed to make society including education have equality and excellence for people who are disadvantage or minorities. Your role in the Civil Rights movements and as current president of University of Maryland, Baltimore County gives me motivation to continue to learn history, social justice, diversity, and civil rights. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, the need for social justice to make communities safe, the importance of diversity to help recognize cultures, and many others.
I strongly believe that you made a great difference in the Civil Rights movement and as current President of University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support with advocate for civil rights, push for education reform, and improve diversity. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, understand the importance of civil rights, and be motivated to continue to learn history, social justice, and diversity. Your story about being involved in the Civil Rights movement is truly inspiring. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and for Black History Month to help recognize African Americans influential who work hard to make a great difference.
