Dear Ms. Hu,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite tv shows that you played in were Sunset Beach, Nash Bridges, and Martial Law. Sunset Beach was a great soap opera because I enjoyed the plot of the show about Meg who runs away to Orange County, California named Sunset Beach to meet a person who has been chatting with her online after she sees her boyfriend cheats on her and has to learn about different people in Sunset Beach. Also in Sunset Beach I enjoyed the plot about how different residents in Sunset Beach have to deal with friendships, relationships, and many other plot twists. Some of my favorite characters in Sunset Beach was Olivia Richards, Meg Cummings, Casey Mitchum, Rae Chang, Cole Deschanel, Antonio Torres, and Michael Bourne. Ms. Hu, I thought you did an excellent job portraying as Dr. Rae Chang because I liked on how you made her have different unique traits like using her medical skills to help residents of Sunset Beach get the care they need and having a friendship with Meg and Casey. Also in season 1 of Sunset Beach I really enjoyed the storyline of Dr. Rae Chang and Casey Mitchum have a relationship even though they had some challenges. Nash Bridges was a great cop drama show about Inspector Nash Bridges who works for the San Francisco Police Department Special Investigations Unit and the Special Investigations Unit investigate cases. In Season 3 and 4, I really liked on how you made San Francisco P.D. Inspector Michelle Chan have great traits like learning on how to be a better person on the job, examining evidence including witness statements to help the other members of the unit to investigate cases, and working alongside with Inspector Nash when he has challenges with the job. Martial Law was another show that I liked where Sammo Law, a cop from China transfer to LAPD to work with other detectives to fight crime. In Martial Law, you really did an excellent job making Detective Grace Chen a great character with different unique traits like helping her mentor Sammo Law including the other LAPD detectives on solving cases, using her skill sin martial arts to fight crime, 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. Also I like on how you use your role as an Asian American to help advocate along with support Asian Americans rights including Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights, provide funds to help repair the Asian American community, and donated money to the Center for Asian Americans United for Self Empowerment to encourage Asian Americans to register to vote. Also another thing that I like about your activism is how support raising awareness to protect Hawaiian ecology, be a spokesperson for Reef Check Hawaii to help address the need to protect it from pollution, and address the need to combat against climate change. Ms. Hu, 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. Also another thing that I struggle with a disability is when some friends, peers of my friends, and other people bully me or get judgmental about me being different or having a disability. Being an Asian American with a disability is difficult when some Asians and some Asian Americans tease me or get judgmental about me being different or not meeting their standards. Your role as an Asian American and being an advocate for Asian American with disabilities’ rights helps give me confidence about being an Asian American when I face different 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 inspire me to work hard on my disability, be a fan of your acting, and continue to be confident about being an Asian American. Here is a small donation to help your cause. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to do well and to make an impact on society.
