I have to write an essay entitled: "How I can contribute to diversity at the University of *******"
its a 500 word essay for a minority scholarship. It has some serious errors and I need some help working them out, I still need to make it longer and am currently working on a conclusion.
If I can do anything for the community at the University of ******, contributing to its diversity is one of the things im best suited for. The experiences ive had with people from different cultures, the languages I speak and the fact that im 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 something I dont have in common with most of the people around me. 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, so I can better identify with both cultures
Argentina is not the only foreign country I have been to. I love to visit new places and meet people who are different from me and luckily, so do my parents. So 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 in those places and hearing what they 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 fluently 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 idf two people are to gain anything from an interaction. I dont have a rigid set of beliefs, I like to hear new ideas and discuss them
