Choosing a focus for diversity statement

Post by Mr. Elshal » Thu Oct 04, 2012 11:50 pm

Hey guys,

I'm trying to choose a focus for my diversity statement. Basically, I am Jewish, Argentinean, and Middle Eastern (half my family is from egypt and half from argentina).

I am trying to decide between writing about:
a) the difficulties that I have had in trying to reconcile the two completely different cultures in my family
b) how being of Argentinean heritage has impacted me/made me different
c) how being of Egyptian heritage has impacted me/made me different

Any suggestions or input?

I would be interested to know how one side of your family is from a predominantly catholic area and the other is from a predominantly muslim area, and yet you are jewish.

Perhaps you could tie all three things together...
