I want to find a letter in my string.

Let say I have a string with an "A"
Then I have another string. I want this to see if the first letter in the string is "A"

Example
Andersson  //This one is true. First letter A
Walter    //This one is false. First letter W

What letter comes into my method is never known. Sometimes an A sometimes B and so on
