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 social justice to make communities better, and many others. State Senator Min, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Member of the California State Senate from the 37th district to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Member of the California State Senate from the 37th district, I truly appreciate on how you were a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities, supporting funds for women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and working with members of the California state legislatures to expand on laws to combat against hate-crimes to help protect minorities including people who are different. On the economy, I liked on how you supported expansion of jobs training programs to help train workers including youth to develop or improve on work skills to help them prepare for the work force and heavily advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage workers afford to live. Supporting funds for renewable energy resources to make them safe for people to use, encouraging businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and working to provide funds to improve city services along with government services to help clean parks, water resources, and coastal areas to make them safe for people to use. During the COViD-19 pandemic, I like on how you worked to with members of California State legislature to push for funds to local businesses along with small businesses including food services to help them keep in business while provide with with COVID-19 safety tools, working to expand unemployment benefits to workers who lost their job due to no fault of their own or people who can’t work due to COVID-19, and supporting better funding to provide COVID-19 testings including masks along with COVID-19 vaccine distribution to communities including people who are low-income.

State Senator Min, 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 really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also being an Asian American with a disability is difficult for me due to some Asians including some Asian Americans get judgmental about me having disability and how they believe that I don’t meet their standards. Your role as an Asian American and supporting along with advocating for Asian American with disabilities’ rights helps give me some confidence about being an Asian American when I face different challenges. Your role as Member of the California State Senate from the 37th district helps give me motivation to continue to learn history including social justice. 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, improve social justice to make communities a better place, and many others. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and for Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month May to recognize Asian Americans who work hard to make a great difference for society.
