I can put together a template with the factual information for this question:
"In your own words, summarize what it means to be culturally competent and evaluate your current knowledge level of this skill.
Provide examples from your past experience, coursework, and/or practicum experience that support your knowledge level and demonstrate at least three specific competencies as presented in the ASPH MPH Diversity and Culture, the Competencies Project, or the Public Health Code of Ethics.
Discuss at least one competency within this skill that you wish to gain or improve, and suggest one means of accomplishing this goal.

and then give you some prompts to guide you in the personal experience part of the question.
For the Advocacy portions:
I can answer this :
- In your own words, what is the importance of advocacy in public health?
Which should help you with the second part.
Let me know how you would like to continue.
