College admissions essay opener help?

ok, so im really good at writing essays, but when it comes to writing about myself, i well, suck. i know its important to have a really interesting and legit topic sentence, so i dunno if mine is good enough. here's two possible intros i have so far: I have never seen "The Lion King". I try to avoid telling that to people because whenever I do, I get piercing stares and unbelieving gasps. I was not a deprived child or anything along those lines; I just have never seen the movie. Taking this fact into consideration, I realize that I am a lot different than most people. ORHaving the barista call out the name "Hermione" at Starbucks, and marching up proudly to receive my beverage, i realized that i am a lot different that most people. My background isn't the same cookie cutter one as most american teenagers. All of my life, i have had to fight for what i wanted and what i believe in. Growing up with a hispanic backround, and attending a school with huge diversity, i... (blah blah blah)which one would you choose for the prompt: A range of academic interests, personal perspectives, and life experiences adds much to the educational mix. Given your personal background, describe an experience that illustrates what you would bring to the diversity in a college community, or an encounter that demonstrated the importance of diversity to you.

    I would go with the “I have never seen “The Lion King”". It sounds more mature and catches my attention more. I think that is one of the biggest things. So many people apply at so many places and you need to stand out, be yourself but show your difference from the rest of the world. I think that this one really puts out there, while keeping you away from being too weird or unintelligent or anything else of the sort. It sounds a lot better and looks a lot better and that is what I am recommending. No matter what your choice is, good luck to you!
