Dear Circuit Judge Beamer,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American and I have a strong interest in learning history including social justice. In these subjects, I like to learn the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. Circuit Judge Beamer, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Circuit Judge for the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida and your work on helping the Asian American community to be very inspiring to me.
In 2019, I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first Korean American woman to serve in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida. In your current role as Circuit Judge for the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, pushing for strict sentencing for people who commit hate crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and expressing the need to reduce racial profiling in the judicial system to help protect minorities including immigrants from being oppressed. Supporting the need for drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, working with other circuit judges including the court system to expand on programs to help victims of domestic violence or victims of crime get help on dealing with their trauma, and expressing the need for more funds for DNA testing including forensic science to help solve cases including evidence efficiently while reduce sending innocent person to jail is common sense for criminal justice reform. Also in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, I like on how you are an advocate for better protection on civil liberties like protecting the 4th amendment to help protect people from unreasonable searches. Besides your work in the judicial system, I like on how you are active in the Asian American community by advocating for Asian Americans rights including Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights, supporting the need for more educational awareness for Asian American culture, and expressing the need for more funds to help Asian American communities.
Circuit Judge Beamer, 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 as an Asian American with a disability, I face struggles when some Asians including some Asian Americans tease me or get judgmental about me being different or not meeting their standards. Your role as an Asian American on advocating for Asian American with disabilities’ rights helps me try to have confidence about being an Asian American when I face challenges. Your work as current Circuit Judge of the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida gives me some motivation to continue to learn history including social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for the judicial system. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support Civil Rights, push for criminal justice reform, and advocate for Asian Americans including Asians. You have truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, continue to be confident about being an Asian American when I have challenges, and to be motivated to learn history including social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great impact on society, and inspiring me, My letter is a gift to you for inspiring and for May Asian Pacific American Heritage Month to help recognize Asian Americans or Asian who work hard to make society a better place. I wish you the best to continue to make a great difference for society.
