I chose to answer the prompt “How do our own stories shape who we are?”. My answer to that is this: our stories have a huge effect on who we are. The stories we grow up with affect our view on the world and the people in it, along with how we act. They often teach us values to have, such as respect and honesty. They can also teach us about our religion and what to believe in, such as the Bible (Christianity) or folk tales; such as the ones about the creation of the Iroquois people we read. However, the stories we were raised with do not define us and we can grow from them. Our own, life stories, are always changing and shape who we are by giving us something to reflect on and show others.
