Hey Vinny,

How is overcomming tremendous obsticals just a "sob story?"  The fact that you dont see that you have overcome so much to get where you are today says something.  Part of what I see is that your past has caused you to be closed off and a little cold.  I suspect it comes from not wanting to get hurt.  There is nothing wrong with telling your story to assist you in reaching your goals.  Be proud of who you are and where you came from and especially all that you had to endure to make it to where you are now.

Thanks for the comments LP.
I am not trying to start something, I just feel that if I don't want people to be able to take advantage of AA then I shouldn't take advantage of my situation, and I know that's what someo of you were thinking.
I would feel bad about it, sounding liek a hippocrite?

 ???...You may want to read LP and Blk's responses again and let it soak through.
By the way, I wasn't thinking that at all

Here's an echo of earlier statements:
You have a story to tell-use it.

I guess so. Would that be what goes into a diversity statement? (I know a stupid question) are there any cites that have examples of diversity statements? Or anyone can let me read theirs just to see?

what does overcoming adversity have to do with being diverse? or minority? it's a personal statement.. that's it..that's all...
