For one of the scholarships I'm applying to, I've been asked to write a brief essay on my family.
"Applicants come from diverse family backgrounds. Please describe any family characteristics or experiences that you can share with us."
What sorts of things should I be thinking about for this? I thought about mentioning interesting tid-bits of our family heritage, my sister studying in England, and my mom's undiagnosed neurological disorder, but I'm kind of stuck on what other types of things I should mention that are interesting.
