sounds kinda personal - but I would be thinking about the times that I was an outsider and how being an outsider gave me a different perspective.

Think about different aspects of your identity and how you identify yourself ---what are some of the most apparent aspects and what are hidden aspects? What are the most salient identities? The big 8 social identity groups are: ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, socio-economic status. Of course, you may view yourself as a combination of intersecting identities that make you unique. For instance, a person could have dual citizenship or be a refugee; could be the first in the family to go to college; could have overcome hardships and obstacles; could have special talents in music/athletics, service & leadership, etc. Each person has a special story and background to share to expand learning and cultural exchange.
