Answer BOTH of the following questions. Please be thorough and upload essays below.
1) Tell us about a time you received unequal treatment based on your race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, immigration status, economic class, disability or anything else. What happened? How were you treated differently? How did you respond? If you had a chance to tackle this problem in a bigger way, what might you do to move the world closer to equality? Write at least four well-developed paragraphs.
2) Good personal stories include many details, sometimes painful, sometimes embarrassing, and your thoughts and feelings. Think of one personal story you'd like to work on and write at least six well-developed paragraphs as a first draft.
