I believe diversity is everyone, and everything. No two people are alike; no two substances in this world could be identical, no matter how close they may look.

Diversity is the sense that no matter where you come from, who you are, or what your background is, there is a place for you. Diversity is also part of the foundation of humanity.

Diversity is everywhere and especially plays a role in humanity, which every single human being is different in every single aspect both physically and mentally.

True diversity is a variety of personalities coming together as a group. Without diversity the world would be just boring and dull.

Diversity is being able to see everything from all different points of view. Being able to put yourself in someone else's shoes and not judging them.

Be who you are and don’t change for no one no matter the situation. Equality is no matter what race, religion, etc. you are; we are all equal and deserve respect! Equality is making sure you treat others how you would want to be treated no matter what you look like or what you believe.
