Dear Ms. Lunden,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, environment, social justice, and current events. In these subjects I like to learn the need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Ms. Lunden, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work in the news media to be very inspiring to me.
When you were co-host of Good Morning America, I liked on how you would work with other co-host of Good Morning America on covering different topics ranging from current events to other news topics. On your interviews with celebrities including political officials I like on how you would ask them questions about what their work is, holding them accountable when they make a mistake or tell a lie, and many others. On Good Morning America when you talked to ordinary people, I like your approach on being compassionate for people who had difficult lives or have struggles. Another thing that I liked about your work on Good Morning America was how you would be creative on trying to help educate viewers about different healthy life styles. Another news show that I enjoyed watching was Behind Closed Doors. Behind Closed Doors was a great news documentary where you would explore places that was off limits to the public. In Behind Close Doors you really did an excellent job covering different places, explaining the benefits of them, interviewing people who were part of the place while sharing some interesting facts, and many others. Besides your news reporter career, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination. Also on your activism, I like on how you are heavily an advocate for better health care reform to help people with pre-existing conditions or who can’t afford health care to get help and support programs to help fund research to combat against cancer or other diseases.
Ms. Lunden, I have autism with a learning disability. 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. Your work in the news media and your activism helps me continue to be motivated to learn history including other subjects. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, help make news media report on facts instead of for ratings, and many others. Also on my Washington DC trip I was able to visit the Newseum where I got to learn how the news media works, the benefits of news media, and I got to see a mini exhibit of your work in the news media.
I strongly believe that you made a great difference in the news media. I’m very proud on how you work hard to try to make news media a great tool to educate people while be creative at presenting different topics. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn more about your work, explore different topics, and visit the Newseum. Here is a small donation to help your activism and a picture of me when I visited the Newseum for you to keep as a gift for inspiring me. 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.
