I have a new idea for a diversity statement and I wanted to get some opinions. As a member of the student house of representatives at my school I pioneered a bill to lower parking ticket prices because I wanted to aid low-income students who were having trouble affording an education because of their status/background...The bill was passed and prices were lowered. The topic doesn't show why I'm personally diverse, but it shows my desire to help others....Does the idea work for a diversity statement?
I tried to be nice and explain what a diversity statement was supposed to do. That would be a better PS and you can talk about growing up with disorders in a DS. Parking ticket shit =/= diverse.
Maybe I didn't explain the idea fully enough. I am one of the students who was having trouble affording a parking decal. I come from a middle class family and am constantly strapped for cash. So I made a bill to help me and others who struggle to afford college. THis couldn't work for a diversity statement?
