Dear Ms. Yang,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I’m a fan of your work as a singer and your activism. Some of my favorite songs that you sing are Ib Ob Pen Los Sees Cev, Dolor, Daydream, You will be Ok, Keep That Grind, and many others. Ms. Yang, I think that you do such an excellent job singing because I like on how you make your songs have symbolisms like the need for love when times are hard, working hard to overcome different struggles in life, how it is important on helping people or showing compassion to people who are different or when they are in a time of need, a strong need for friendships, and many others. Also another thing that I like your songs is how it has some message about social justice, mental health awareness, and many others. Besides your singing 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 are an activist to help the Asian American community like advocating for Asian American rights including Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights, expressing the need for more funds for the Asian American community to help repair it, and heavily support the need for more educational awareness programs to help educate people including youth about Asian American and Asian culture.
Ms. Yang, 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 in different settings (social and environmental), and get teased. Also with my disability I have face some challenges on understanding social cues and dealing with social anxiety. Your advocacy along with support for civil rights including people with disabilities’ right causes really inspire me to work hard on my disability. Also being an Asian American with a disability is difficult when some Asians including some Asian American tease me or get judgmental about not meeting their standards.Your role as an Asian American role model on supporting Asian American with disabilities’ rights gives me some confidence about being an Asian American when I face challenges. Your songs that have some symbolism in life helps give me motivation to try to find different methods to improve myself or give me some comfort when I struggle in life. Also your activism on social justice causes inspires me to develop more of an interest in learning about social justice. In social justice, I like learning the importance of making civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protecting the environment from pollution, having criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented singer. You do an excellent job making your songs have creativity and some messages about life. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, be a fan of your singing including your activism, try to find different methods to improve myself when there are challenges in life, and be confident about being an Asian American when there are challenges. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to work hard to make a great difference.
