- Our clients represent a range of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Tell me why you will be able to work with them effectively.
- How much do you understand about your own acculturation process? How will this help or hinder you in working with our clientele?

In your initial response, devote at least one paragraph to each response.
