I was hoping to get some suggestions or ideas for a question I have come across in several supplemental applications.

Although the actual question varies, there is a common theme: diversity. Philosophy and experiences.

Historically, I have had a hard time answering this question because -- to be honest -- I'm the antithesis of diverse because I'm a white male from a middle-class background and grew up in an environment with a very homogenous white/middle-class demographic.

I can speak to my own beliefs, but I have a hard time with the experiences. Additionally, I want to avoid being offensive or speaking from a place of privilege. Any help would be greatly appreciated and do not hesitate to ask further questions!
