My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history and culture. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for civil rights to reduce discrimination and learn how different cultures help make in impact on society. Chef Chung, the main reason I'm writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as a chef/food expert and as an author to be very inspiring to me.
I watched you on Bravo Tv Top Chef , Chef Chung, I thought you did an excellent job competing on the show because I like on how you made the recipes creative, educating the judges including viewers about how to prep the food along with the beneficial of using different foods in a recipes, and sharing your story about how you got inspired to do cooking. Also I enjoy reading some of your cook book Chinese Heritage Cooking from my American Kitchen because I like learning how Chinese food can be created in different ways along with educating people about Chinese culture. Also on some of the food network shows and on talk shows I like on how you would give people advice about preparing or cooking food and helping give instructions to make the recipe.
Besides your work as a chef/food expert, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities' rights causes to reduce discrimination. I like on how you use your role as an Asian American to help advocate with support Asian Americans including Asian Americans with disabilities rights, express the need for educational awareness about Asian American culture, and many others. Chef Chung, 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 with my disability, I have trouble fitting into social groups, sometimes I struggle to understand different topics, and people including other adults get judgmental about me. Also being an Asian American with a disability is difficult for me due to some Asians and some Asians Americans get judgmental about me being different from them. 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. Also your role as an Asian American on supporting Asian Americans with disabilities' rights helps give me some confidence about being an Asian American when there are struggles. Your role as a chef/ food expert and your books about Asian food cooking and as an Asian American advocate helps give me motivation to continue to learn history and culture.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented chef and a talented tv host/ media presenter. You do an excellent job presenting recipes while give advice about how to prepare or cook a recipe. Also I truly appreciate your activism to help make society a better place. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, be a fan of your work, learn different things, and continue to be confident about being an Asian American when there are challenges. I was wondering if you could please share with some advice about working hard on my disability. 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 impact on society.
