Dear Ms. Tan,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history including social justice. I recently read “Meet Samantha Tan, Championship BMW Race Care Driver And Team Owner”, an article on Forbes website and I enjoyed it because I enjoyed learning about how you got interested in doing BMW racing and how you work hard to overcome different challenges as an Asian American. Also on Youtube “2019 SRO Driver Promo-Samantha Tan” I had fun learning about more about some of your highlights as a BMW race care drivers and sharing some of your racing skills. Besides your racing career, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination, speak out against bullying, and use your role as an Asian American to help advocate with support Asian Americans and Asians rights including Asian Americans and Asians with disabilities’ rights. Ms. Tan, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Also another thing that I struggle with a disability is when some of my friends, peers, and other adults get judgmental about me being different from other people or not meeting their standards which results in me being left out of social groups or society. When I face these challenges or when I accidentally make a mistake I feel discourage about myself. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also being an Asian American with a disability is difficult when some Asians including some Asian Americans get judgmental about me being different or not meeting their standards. Your role as an Asian American and being an advocate with a supporter of Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights gives me confidence about being an Asian American when I face different challenges.
I wanted to say that I’m very proud on how you are working hard to make a great difference for society. your story of working hard to overcome different challenges and how you got inspired to be a race drive is very inspirational and moving. I truly appreciate on how you use your activism to make a great difference for society. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, try my best to understand life when there are challenges, and be confident about being an Asian American when there are challenges. I was wondering if you please give some advice to me 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 difference and continue to inspire many people like me.
