    "The difference between science and the arts is not that they are different sides of the same coin even, or even different parts of the same continuum, but, rather, that they are manifestations of the same thing. The arts and sciences are avatars of human creativity."
    —Mae Jemison, the first African-American female U.S. astronaut and a physician, scientist, and teacher, as presented in a TED Talk

    Having read this quote, reflect on these questions:

    How are you "creative"? Do you see yourself as an artist, a scientist, or something else (a historian, a philosopher, an entrepreneur)? Share examples that illustrate how you see your own creativity. Your essay response should be between 500 and 700 words.
