Diversity Statement Potential Topic

Postby mtilla » Sun Mar 24, 2019 10:46 pm

Hello everyone!

I'm currently struggling to come up with an idea for a mandatory diversity statement, and I was wondering if I could get some input on a potential topic.

Sparing the details, I grew up severely overweight and was able to drastically change my life through hard work and determination. It’s something that has had a significant impact on my personal values and outlook on my life that I believe gives me a unique perspective.

I’m worried that this topic may be too sensitive and possibly ruffle some feathers. I wouldn’t frame it as being overweight as a negative attribute, just talk about what I’ve learned from my experience and how it would add to the diversity of ideas.

Does anyone have any thoughts/input/ideas?
