Our Past Often Drives our Future

We certainly do not need to be defined by our past, but at the same time we are inclined to recognize that our past informs who we are today, and who we become tomorrow. The experiences, actions and influences during our time growing up leave lasting impressions on all of us. So our question for today’s team blog, written by students in a journalism writing course at MBU, is this: What moments from your childhood have defined the person you are today?

Moving through our personal history is often like driving down a road on a great adventure, being able to reflect on the sights we have seen behind us and at the same time anticipating what might be around the next corner.      Photo by Emma Tihen
