First, drop the Mark Twain bit. We all know that experience is our most influential teacher. Just go right in to talking about your experiences and how they shaped you.

Cut that out & re-post.

I could see this as a diversity statement, but not really as a PS. A PS is supposed to take the place of an interview to really sell yourself to the admissions committee. From the perspective of the admissions committee, I'm not sure that I get anything out of this statement showing that you'd be an asset for my law school besides that you have a pretty awesome cultural identity and experiences.
