Dear Ms. Kim,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, social justice, and current events. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, have social justice to help improve the communities, and many others. Ms. Kim, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as a news reporter of KSHB41/ KMCI-TV to be very inspiring to me and to share with you about my trip to Kansas City, Missouri.
In your current role as news reporter of KSHB41/ KMCI-TV, I like on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights causes by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights and expressing the need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination in order to protect minorities including people who are different. Also I like on how you are a strong supporter of campaign to combat against bullying. Your approach in the news media like interviewing people about different topics ranging from local politics through other topics, doing hands-on approach with other people in businesses or when they are demonstrating a product to help viewers understand them, and taking the time to listen to citizens of America including citizens of Kansas City, Missouri when they have concerns are great ways for journalism. Also what I like about your work as a news reporter of KSHB41/ KMCI-TV, I like on how you give healthy lifestyle tips, address the need for better programs to help people who are homeless or who struggle with poverty get help, investigate public officials who are engage in corruption, highlight different individuals (minorities, women, people with disabilities, and immigrants) who work hard to make a great difference, heavily address the need for better improvements on people with disabilities’ rights. Another thing to mention is I enjoy seeing you highlight the important attractions or museums in Kansas City, Missouri and educating many people like me about the importance of these things to explore history including culture. Besides your work as a news reporter, I like on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination, support social justice causes to improve communities, and advocate with support the Asian American rights including Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights.
Ms. Kim, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advanced subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts in different settings, and get teased. Also with my disability I have face some challenges on understanding social cues and dealing with social anxiety. . 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. Also I had done teaching time to help me learn to speak while learn how to improve my behavior, spent time in special education to help me learn different subjects in education, and many others. Your advocacy along with support for civil rights including people with disabilities’ right causes really inspire me to work hard on my disability. Being an Asian American with a disability is a challenge when some Asians or some Asian Americans get judgmental about me being different from them. Your role as an Asian American and being an advocate along with a supporter of people with disabilities’ rights helps give me motivation as an Asian American with a disability. I have visited Kansas City, Missouri a few times where I got to visit the Jazz Museum to learn on how Jazz played a role in society, the WW1 Museum to learn about the history of WW1, The Nelson Atkin art Museum of Art to explore different art work. Kansas City, Missouri was a great place to learn about culture and some history. Also your work as a news reporter of KSHB41, your work on the KSHB41 website, and your social media page helps give me motivation to continue to learn history, social justice, and current events. Also your work on covering poverty and social justice causes helps give me motivation to continue to do volunteering to help feed homeless people in Downtown A2. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need for civil rights to be stronger, make social justice stronger to improve communities, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in the news media including society. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to address the important issues that we face, be an advocate with a strong supporter of social justice including people with disabilities’ rights, and many others. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn about your work, continue to learn different subjects, be confident about being an Asian American with a disability, and visit Kansas City, Missouri. I was wondering if you could please share with me some advice about working hard on my disability along with how you got interested in news media career. Also I was wondering if you could wish me a Happy Birthday for December 3rd. I have provided you with a picture of me when I visited The Nelson Atkin art Museum of Art on my Kansas City, MO trip as a gift to you for inspiring me. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. I hope that you take the time to respond to my letter and that my letter gives you inspiration because you inspire me with your work. Please continue to make a great difference for society and the news media.
