You are to write a reflection paper focused on yourself using the following questions as a guide:
Identify my dimensions of diversity (i.e., ethnicity, gender, SES, religion, sexual orientation, ability). How have they influenced who I am as a person? What role does privilege/White privilege and oppression have in my life?
How does my diversity influence my relationships with others?
How will my diversity help me in working with culturally diverse clients? How might it hinder me?
What steps will I take to become a social justice advocate and culturally competent counselor?
You should engage in self-reflection that can include speaking with friends and family to answer these questions thoroughly. Use personal examples from your life to create this narrative.
