Dear Mr. Muraoka,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite tv show that you played in was Sesame Street. Sesame Street was a great educational tv show about different Sesame Street Muppets would interact in different ways. Mr. Muraoka, I thought you did an excellent job portraying as Alan, the owner of Hooper’s store because I liked on how you made Alan have different traits like caring about children who go through different challenges, helping give advice to the Sesame Muppets how to understand how to be friendly or how to resolve a conflict, and many others. Sesame Street did a great job having good life lessons and symbolisms like the learn form your mistakes to be a better person, importance of improving yourself when there are obstacles, learn the need to reduce conflicts or differences to work as a team or fix a friendships, bullying is not right in society, how accepting people who are different or where they come from is important, and many others. Also another thing that I like about Sesame Street was how it did an excellent job educating people about the need to protect the environment from pollution and the importance of reducing litter.
Besides your acting career, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination and support environmental protection causes to reduce pollution. Also I like on how you use your role as an Asian American to help advocate with support Asian American rights including Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights, express the need for educational awareness to help educate people about Asian including Asian American culture, and support causes to help fix the Asian American community. Mr. Muraoka, 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 causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. During my childhood to present, I have faced many challenges with a disability when I struggle maintaining friendships or lose friends when some of my friends, peers, and adults get judgmental about me being different or not meeting their standards, also get rejected from society including social groups, when I accidently make a mistake I feel bad about myself when I try my best to work hard at improving myself, and many others. To help me when I struggle with a disability along with lose faith in myself, I would watch Sesame Street to help give me comfort along with learn how different life lessons are important in life. Your character Alan and the show Sesame Street helped give me some inspiration to learn about the need to improve myself when there are challenges, understand the importance of friendships, and learn methods to reduce conflicts or find solutions to fix a problem. Being an Asian American with a disability is difficult for me due to some Asians including some Asian Americans get judgmental about me having a disability or not meeting their standards. Your role as an Asian American along with being an advocate for Asian American with disabilities’ rights helps give me some confidence about being an Asian American when I face different challenges.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented actor. You do such an excellent job making Alan a great character with different unique traits in Sesame Street. Also I truly appreciate your activism to improve society. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, be a fan of your work including Sesame Street, continue to be confident about being an Asian American when there are challenges, and try to learn different life lessons or different solutions when there are problems.
