Would this be a bad idea for a diversity statement?

Postby dontrogerthat » Wed Jun 10, 2015 6:27 pm

I'm PR but never really faced too many negative life effects due to it or really even was exposed to the culture. This was due to my father having a fallout with his side of the family, which is PR. 2 years ago a village in my extended families town in PR was destroyed and my family flew down to help them rebuild their house. I learned SO MUCH about my heritage over that summer. Would this make for a bad diversity statement since it's not very typical of how I overcame something due to my diversity?

to the contrary. that sounds like a great idea for a diversity statement. I was expecting you to say something a lot stupider.
