Berkeley Haas EMBA Essay 1: A person’s identity is shaped by many different aspects, including family, culture, personal interests, and surrounding environments. Please share a facet of your identity or story that is essential to who you are. (300-word limit).

With 300 words at your disposal, your thoughts must be clear and your pencil sharp. You want to choose ONE thing in the list of facets that make up your identity. Choose something that is defining for you, which means you need to be able to articulate exactly how it defines you. Does it impact your choices? Has it impacted your career? Or is it simply an aspect of you that enlightens your priorities, professional or spiritual.

Start with a sentence or two describing the aspect you have chosen, then spend the rest of your word space telling the Admissions Committee what that means to you or how it has determined your path—OR determines your future choices.
