500 characters. I'm at 877 characters currently. I don't know where to cut down, it's such a small limit! (Also, I know I say "culture" too much, trying to change it)
While there are a few cultural pieces
lying around my home, my cultural background
is not very prevalent. In fact, making my grandmother's Swedish meatballs is about as much as our family embraces our muddled heritage. It is this lack of a glaring cultural background, however, that has led me to search for more answers
. I'll pester my father about our family crests or our Dutch heritage. My never-failing curiosity has led me to collect generations worth of cultural history
I have found a fascination with the cultural history
that I can discover through exploring diversity. Whether it is in
opinions or cultures, I believe that everyone has their own form
of diversity. Just by learning about the people who have shared my last name, I have come to love to explore diversity
. I hope to continue my reaching out to diversity
throughout my four years at Denison University.

right or are too repetitive. Can anyone help me with this?
