Attending a school with outstanding diversity allows me to be Cincinnati Smart. Growing up in rural Ohio, I did not experience much diversity in my first 18 years of life. However, since attending the University of Cincinnati I have been able to diversify with the people I am around, the places I go, and activities I take part in. I feel I have grown from this diversity as a student but also as a young adult growing in life. The University of Cincinnati has given me an experience in life that I was missing, and I am grateful for that.
