Is this a stupid idea for my common app essay?
I am thinking about writing my essay about the time that I convinced my entire third-grade class that I was Irish. I would speak in an Irish accent and perform little Irish dances to my class. They all believed me, except, I am not Irish- I am a brown-skinned Muslim girl. This whole thing stemmed from how I was having identity problems due to being mixed race (North African and Southeast Asian) and Muslim and how I never felt accepted in school and within my own family, but now I have learned to embrace my culture and myself for what it is. Is this dumb?14 replies
