Diversity to me means having representation for all walks of life, from race to sexual orientation to socioeconomic levels and so forth. Representation matters. Seeing people who look like you excel matters because not being included in that narrative makes opportunities feel inaccessible otherwise. Living in New Orleans has helped me with more tangible experiences and examples of the intersectionality of diversity.

The diverse heritage of the city coupled with its diverse population is what makes New Orleans the quirky and unique city it is. I have seen forms of inclusion and acceptance in this city that I have never witnessed before in my life. Interacting with people of different backgrounds brings new information to the table and helps facilitate collaboration. This exposure will better prepare me for the future and better me as a person.
