Hi all, I've currently written my diversity statement on two of my volunteering experiences. One of them is about volunteering/sleeping in a homeless shelter, and another is about living in rural villages in a foreign country, and how these experiences helped me understand how social contexts can affect physical health.

The point I was going for would be that I'm someone who is willing to put himself in uncomfortable conditions to better understand the experiences of others, as well as show my interests in holistic care.

I've gotten some feedback from someone else to talk about my other experiences. I'm willing to change it since I have time, but I wanted to see what others thought about these:

1. Instead of talking about life in the rural villages (which I highlighted in my personal statement), another activity which involved being part of a club during college in which students formed partnerships with EVS and dining services workers to promote mutual learning and respect across the school.

2. Studying economics and being interested in health policy/health reform

3. Interests in immigrant health, and my personal experiences living with immigrant parents (like dealing with challenges such as stigma against mental health care). My current work also is about promoting Asian-American health and I do volunteer work with Asian American community organizing groups. (I was initially against this because I figured being an overrepresented minority isn't really that 'diverse')
