To truly write a statement that would reflect who I am and why I want to be a lawyer, would mean describing the many advesaries I have faced in my life. My issues are complex and may seem a bit much to discuss. However I did spend some time in a Haiti earlier this year and the experience had a huge impact. So should I skip the childhood trauma (i.e, sexual abuse, sexual orientation, poverty) and go for a more positive approach or should I combine the two?
More importantly how personal is too personal? Where should I draw the line? What would make you feel uncomfortable reading?
