Dear President Mahoney,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, social justice, environmental protection, and diversity. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, expand on education reform to improve learning, have diversity to accept people who are different or who come from a different background, and improve on social justice to make communities a better place. President Mahoney, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 14th President of San Francisco State University to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 14th President of San Francisco State University, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter and advocate for civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights and expressing the need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination in order to protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities. Also to improve civil rights, I liked on how you work to expand on rules to combat against bullying and harassment. On people with disabilities; rights, I like on how you work to expand courses for people with disabilities to learn different subjects including basic introductory courses to help them learn. Supporting accommodations to help students with disabilities like extra time on exams or use educational software to help improve comprehension, expanding tutoring services to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and implementing more liberal arts, arts, humanities, history, and basic classes to make education diverse along with make more opportunities for students to find subjects that they want to learn are great ways to improve education reform. Also on education reform I like on how you support literacy programs to help students including adults improve on their comprehension skills or gain literacy skills. On diversity, I like on how you work on hiring women, minorities, and people with disabilities to work for the college and expand on programs to help educate staff members and students about different cultures along with the need for diversity to accept people who are different or come from a different background. Also to improve diversity in education I like on how you expanded more basic or introductory classes to different subjects, expand on arts, history, and humanities to help accept students with different skills to learn different subjects or assist students to explore different courses to their degree. Another thing that I like about your work as President of San Francisco State University is how you expand on more research programs to help students get engage to learn how different topics can make a great difference for society, implement mental health services to help students who struggle with mental health or other people who live in the San Francisco area to get the care they need, push for more scholarships to help low income students or minorities get assistance on getting into college or affording supplies, create Equity Task Force to find ways to combat against racial injustice while find ways to expand on making education more accessible to people who come from disadvantage communities along with who come from different communities, and heavily express the need to reduce high tuition cost to help students from paying high costs in order to get a college. Besides your work as President of San Francisco State University is how you are a continuous advocate along with a supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination, address the need for environmental protection to reduce pollution, and emphasize the need for immigration reform to help protect dreamers, immigrants, and refugees from being oppressed or when they come from oppressive countries.
President Mahoney, 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. 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. In August 2019, I enjoyed visiting San Francisco, California where I enjoyed visiting the Asian Art Museum where I enjoyed learning about the Asian culture, San Francisco City Hall to learn about the political system in SF, Walt Disney Museum to learn about Walt Disney’s life, explore the Golden Gate Bridge, and walked around San Francisco State University to explore the campus. Also on Youtube and your website I enjoy watching you talk about diversity, education reform, need for improvements in social justice, equity issues, and some of ideas to improve societyYour role as 14th President of San Francisco State University helps give me motivation to continue to learn history, social justice, environmental protection, 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, expand on education reform to improve learning, have diversity to accept people who are different or who come from a different background, and improve on social justice to make communities a better place.
