Supplemental Questions
  1. Do you plan to attend college in Nevada?
  2. Essay - 500 words - Often Black women are not acknowledged or recognized for their work, efforts, and leadership in socio-political settings among others. Write about a local or national Black woman who contributed to a social/political movement, but their work is not highly discussed nor credited. Briefly explain who they are, what they have done, and why they inspire you. Cite any sources you use (sources are not included in word count). Tip: Make sure your essay doesn't read like a biography. Focus the heart of the essay back on you - why this woman inspires you, how they are meaningful to you, how their actions, work, leadership, etc. resonate with your past, current and future self, for example.
