Dear Mr. Jue,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite tv show that you were recurring in was Madam Secretary. Madam Secretary was a great political drama show about Elizabeth McCord who becomes U.S. Secretary of State under President Dalton’s administration and has to help navigate the political environment while reduce tensions between different countries. Mr. Jue, I thought you did an excellent job portraying as Chinese Foreign Minister Ming Chen because I liked on how you made him have different unique traits like working with U.S. Secretary Elizabeth McCord to find ways to improve China/US relations despite differences or different point of view, wanting to find ways to change the Chinese culture to accept human rights despite disagreements with the Chinese government, and many others. Also what I liked about Foreign Minister Ming Chen was would work on diplomacy while continuing talks with U.S. Secretary Elizabeth McCord to try to be allies when they were dealing with challenges in thew world like poverty, health care, human rights, and many others. Madam Secretary was also a great show because it showed what it was like for a U.S. Secretary of State to work with other foreign countries on diplomacy, how other foreign countries would react to the world problems, and how finding solutions to problems can be tricky, but can there can be other different methods to find ways to reduce conflicts.
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. Also I like on how you use your role as an Asian American to help advocate with support Asian Americans rights including Asian American with disabilities’ rights, express the need for educational awareness to help educate people about Asian American culture, and support causes to help repair the Asian American community. Mr. Jue, 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. Another thing that I struggle with a disability is when other people including other adults get judgmental about me being different from them and have struggles to find different methods to improve myself. 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. 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. Also your character Foreign Minister Ming Chen in Madam Secretary helps give me motivation to try to find different strategies to improve myself including find ways to understand solutions when there are obstacles, develop an interest in learning more about world cultures, and continue to learn history including social justice.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented actor. You do such an excellent job making your character have different unique traits. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, be a fan of your acting, and try to find different strategies to help me improve myself or gain knowledge when the world gets difficult. I was wondering if you could also please give me some advice about working hard on my disability and answer some of my questions. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring to me. I wish you the best in the future.
