Dear Mr. President,
My name is Nelson Rivary Cordón, and I am an eighth-grade student at Abington Friends School in Jenkintown, PA. I am dreaming about becoming president, myself, and although I have a long way to go, I really want to help my country and the world. You inspired me in your inaugural address, and I really appreciated what you had to say. I also admired how you started working right away and gave me and many others hope in this turbulent time.
One issue that is really important to me is immigration. Although other topics are also very important to me, this one strikes me as a harder problem to fix because there are so many different steps. First, we have to let people exercise their human right of migration. Second, we have to create more jobs, so that American citizens, new citizens, and the undocumented do not end up homeless. Finally, we have to help better the other countries, so that so many people are not afraid of being killed or stolen from. I think you have started off really well, and have done a lot for the first and second points, but I do think that you could also help by helping countries like Guatemala, where my dad is from, Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and other Central and South American countries. I think it was really good to lift the travel ban on those seven countries in the Middle East, Venezuela, and North Korea, and I hope more steps are taken to connect and deescalate tensions between, the U.S.A and other countries.
In your first 100 days, I would also really like to see laws passed that can benefit everyone. I really thought it was good that you picked a diverse cabinet, but I would also like to see laws that can benefit you regardless of your race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or other identifiers. Although things have started to change in your first few days, I hope you can keep that going.
Thank you for your time.

Dear President Biden and Madam Vice President Harris,
My name is Radha. I am a sixth grader and an entrepreneur. I have a blog in which I write about gardening, global warming, repurposing, and organization. I also have an Etsy shop with my friend. We design and produce stickers! To find my blog and shop online, please, please search tigershakti09! You might have guessed that I am very passionate about the environment, and this is why I am writing to you in your first 100 days.
Thank you for all the work that you have already put in to combat change in regards to climate change and environmental sustainability. Even though we are in the process of joining the Paris Accord again, there is still more work to be done. An example is that a massive amount of plastic and other trash is being dumped into our oceans. Plastic is so bad for this planet because it is deadly in many ways. Plastic is not only deadly to other animals, but also to humans. Microplastics, tiny pieces of plastic broken down in time from the ocean and sun, have been found in some of our foods, including fish. My suggestion to fix this problem is to ban or actually recycle single use plastics. Many of the plastic things in the ocean are single use plastics. I understand that plastic is important to the economy right now because of our current situation and how cheap and easily attainable it is. But in the long run, switching to a better, more eco-friendly alternative will save many lives and help save our planet.
Thank you so much for your time President Biden and Madam Vice President Harris.
