Essay Topic - Talking About Racism as an Asian-American
I was wondering whether talking about experiencing racism as an Asian-American is a bad idea for a Common App Essay topic? I plan to send this essay to some Ivy Leagues but I know that the topic of racism (esp. towards Asians) is kind of a touchy topic for them right now. I planned to talk about personal growth and accepting my heritage but now I'm not too certain on the topic.
I'm still not sure whether to write it about that topic or just pursue another topic.
