Dear Ms. Mei,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite movie that you were in was A Picture of You. A Picture of You was a great comedy drama movie about Jen and Kyle, who are estranged siblings are reunited to help disassemble their mother’s place and learn more about her after their mother passed away. Ms. Mei, I thought you did an excellent job portraying as Jen because I liked on how you made her have different unique traits like continuing to get along with her sibling Kyle when they would have some differences, learning about what it is like being an Asian American in society, and many others. Also what I liked about your character Jen was how she cared about Kyle when he expressed that he face some challenges, trying her best to remember the good times with her mom even though there was some hard times. Paradise Regained was a great short film about 2 strangers who have to work together to find out who marooned them into space. In Paradise Regained I like on how you made Qian Hui have different unique traits like learning how to work together with Rufus Abdullah, another stranger to find out why they were marooned in space, using her skills in technology to help further investigate what happened to them, and many others.
Besides your acting career, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination and support funds to help improve diversity in the arts to make them be a part of society. Also I like on how you use your role as an Asian American to help help advocate including support Asian Americans rights including Asian American with disabilities’ rights, express the need for funds to help repair the Asian American community including their businesses, emphasize the need for educational awareness about Asian American culture including history, and many others. Ms. Mei, 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 characters Jen in A Picture of You and Qian Hui in Paradise Regained helps give me motivated to find ways to improve myself when I have challenges and try to continue compassion along with kindness when the world gets tough. Being an Asian American with a disability is hard for me because some Asians and some Asian Americans get judgmental about me being different from them or not meeting their standards. Also your role as an Asian American and being an advocate along with a supporter of Asians with disabilities’ rights and Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights gives me confidence about being an Asian American with a disability when there are challenges.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented actress. You do such an excellent job making your characters have different unique traits. You have truly inspires me to work hard on my disability, be confident about being an Asian American when there are challenges, find ways to improve myself when there are challenges, and be a fan of your acting. I was wondering if you could please take the time to answer some of my questions. 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.
