2016 Diversity Storytelling Contest

Theme: Being You at CLU!

The Prompt

Write a 700-word personal narrative about how you discovered one specific aspect of your identity. This story should include a real-life experience (not imagined or creative) and your thoughtful reflection about how this part of your identity might impact the world. To do so, you might include details about how you locate your identity within the current American cultural and political climate. Can you remember a time in your life where you learned about your identity and how your identity affects the way you interact with the world around you? Now that you know about this part of your identity, how might you use it shape the world?
