Dear Ms. Tomlin,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite cartoon show that you did was The Magic School Bus. The Magic School Bus was a great cartoon show about a teacher named Ms. Valerie Frizzle who takes her students on an adventure in her magic school bus to explore different topics. Ms. Tomlin, I thought you did an excellent job portraying and voicing as Ms. Valerie Frizzle because I liked on how you made her have different unique traits like caring about her students’ wellbeing or when they lose motivation in life, wanting to make learning a better tool for students, and having a sense of humor. Also what I like about Ms. Frizzle was how she accepted students who come from different background and wanting to show compassion for students. Also in Magic School Bus I really liked on how the show focused on different topics ranging from science, biology, physics, and chemistry. The symbolism that I really liked in The Magic School Bus was the need to not give up learning when there are challenges, the importance of creative to make learning a better tool, the need for friendships or work together as a team when there are challenges or conflicts, and how science including environmental protection is a benefit to society. I enjoyed watching season 1 through season 4 of The Magic School Bus. Another show that I liked that you played in was The West Wing. The West Wing was a great political show about President Josiah Bartlet and his presidential administration on how they have to make difficult decisions on helping our country. In West Wing, I thought you did an excellent job making White House Secretary/ Assistant to the President Deborah Riderer have different traits like helping give advice to President Barlett when he face challenges as U.S. President on making decisions and working with other members of Barlett administration to find ways to work as a team when there are some disagreements.
Besides your acting career, I like on how you are an activist on supporting civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination. Ms. Tomlin, 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. Also when I was young I had trouble with developing speech patterns and had to do teaching time where I would learn how to say certain words or pronounce the words and I would watch the Magic School Bus show to help give me comfort when it was challenging. Your role as Ms. Valerie Frizzle in Magic School Bus and being a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also The Magic School Bus show helped give me motivation to learn subjects when I had difficulty comprehending, struggle with a disability, and lose interest.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented actress. You do such an excellent job making your characters have different unique traits. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, be a fan of your acting, and continue to be motivated to learn when there are challenges. I was wondering if you could please give me some advice about working hard on my disability along with how to continue to strive when there are struggles. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to make a great difference for society and entertainment.
