I am new here so forgive me if this has been asked previously.
I am greatly considering writing my Personal Statement on how my experience as a sexual assault survivor shaped me into the person I am today and is the driving force for my interest in a law career. I am wondering if this is too risky/controversial/dark/dramatic etc. I am not at all ashamed of my experience and gave up on being silent about it a while ago, but I don't want it to come off as a sob story/pity party.
I would not be honing in on any details of my assault and wouldn't so much be discussing the assault itself at all, but rather the effect it had on me and the "journey" (for lack of a better word right now.) I would mainly focus on the positive that came out of it and talk mostly about how it made me want to become a lawyer and help others in similar situations to mine.
Anyway, what do y'all think? Opinions? Suggestions?
