“Hi Amari,

It’s been a while! How are you and Sarah holding up? Did you escape NYC or ride it out for the past few months? Hope you’re safe.

I know this is out of the blue, but I wanted to reach out because I’m in the market for a transition. I’m specifically targeting UX roles at large agencies like X & Y. If you know of anyone who might be good to speak with, I’d be grateful for any connections.

I know this is a big ask, so no pressure and no worries if it’s too much! Either way, be well and send my best to the family.”
