I’m a Diversity Candidate... do you hate me?
I'm a diversity candidate. I had a semi-late and rather lazy start to college due to lack of guidance and vision for the future, but I've bust my ass this past year to get where I am today. I know there's a gap between my "competition" and me, but I'm locked and loaded on narrowing it.
All glory be to him that I've somehow, someway landed a spot at an EB. I completely acknowledge and don't take for granted the fact that there are some folks out there who have just been working longer (not necessarily harder) than I have to end up where I am today.
Currently in an environment surrounded by all kids I admire, respect, and am a little afraid of because they don't come off as the most welcoming.
A part of me wonders if they hate me or if they're just as afraid to connect with me as I am with them. I'm afraid because I feel like they hate me, they may be afraid cuz I'm black (idk).
Kind of a vent session, but feel free to share thoughts.
