Personal Statement: Creative personal story

Supplemental Essay: Issue of personal significance
53 Words
I wrote about feminism, and how at my all girls school women's empowerment and women's rights are highly supported, but when I encounter people outside my school I have very negative experiences with those who do not understand what feminism truly entails and see it as something radical and prejudicial, obstructing social change.
