Looking for a parent to read my supplemental essay.

I wrote an essay for Davidson's supplement, and I had my dad read it and he didn't seem to like it. I was hoping for a second opinion, maybe from someone with a little more knowledge of the application process. (he hasn't done any research-I have done it all and I am too close to the essay to tell if it is good)

here is the prompt:
Davidson is an academically and socially engaged community bound by an Honor Code and committed to thoughtful discourse and an abiding sense of inclusiveness. Reflecting on your own background and educational experience, in what ways is Davidson a good match and how might you enrich this community?



My understanding is that it is largely an honor code essay. I have been struggling to fit in the enriching the community component.


Thank you!
