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. Being an Asian American with a disability is hard for me because some Asians and some Asian Americans get judgmental about me being different from them or not meeting their standards. Also your role as an Asian and being an advocate along with a supporter of Asians with disabilities’ rights and Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights gives me confidence about being an Asian American with a disability when there are challenges. On your website and on Youtube I enjoy learning about your fundamental ideas to improve diversity, expand on education reform, and some ideas to improve social justice. Your current role as 5th Chancellor of University of California, Santa Barbara helps give me motivation to continue to learn history, social justice, environmental protection, diversity, education, and diversity. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, importance of education reform to improve learning, have diversity to accept people who are different or come from a different background, and many others.
