If I can do anything for the community at the University of ******, I can be another element of diversity
. The experiences I have
had with people from different cultures, the languages I speak and the fact that I am
from another country myself are just some of the things that help me bring diversity to a group. I was born in Argentina, which is A part of my heritage that I do not share with people who live in my community
. Even though I moved to the United states when I was three years old, I have been able to visit Argentina almost every year for summer or winter breaks and was even able to go to school for a couple weeks at a time there. Not only do I get to see my grandparents and extended family, but I am also able to learn about the country where I was born and make friends my age there. This helps me to
better identify with the cultures I live with now.
Argentina is not the only foreign country I have visited
. I love to visit new places and meet people who are different from me and,
luckily, so do my parents; therefore,
I have been able to visit many countries in South America and Europe
with them. I have also been able to travel with my school to Spain
and stay in France
with my uncle.
I enjoy learning
from the people I meet
places and hearing what people
have to say about the world. Of course,
I also like to share what I learn with people back home. I think that one of the best ways to contribute to
and promote diversity in a group is by sharing experiences and opinions, and,
by being able to speak Spanish and English
I can share these myself and help others share them by translating.
However, The most important thing I can contribute to diversity
is an open mind. I think it is very important for
to gain insight
from an interaction. I don't
have a rigid set of beliefs, but
I like to hear new ideas and discuss them.Well, I thought that this was a weak essay. It did answer the prompt...I suppose. I am sure that you have numerous ways that you can add to the diversity at the University of ***. If your travels and culture are all that you offer, most likely you will not be chosen because someone with a stronger essay who made sold themselves very well out shined your essay. One of the purposes of these essays is to see who you are, what you are about, and why you want to come to that college. Millions of people every year travel to South America and Europe. Millions of people are bilingual. What makes you different? What sets you apart form everyone of those people? Don't get me wrong. The basics of the essay are great, but I would add more of your qualities to the essay. You want to sound irresistible to the boards.
