Student Narrative

The book focuses on the topic regarding childhood toys and trinkets and what memories they contain. I interviewed five classmates, first asking them first to identify their toy/trinket, then inviting them to talk in detail about the memories that come with them. I chose to pursue the topic of crucial childhood toys and memories, as I believe that it is a fascinating insight into how a person develops into who they are. It is like examining tree rings and identifying key moments that happened in the past, and that played a significant role in the growth of the tree. This exploration also shines a light on just how fragile and finicky our futures are, as they can change drastically based on a small and seemingly insignificant choice we made in the past.
