I have been traveling, but I made sure to find some time today to show you our third finalist. @steinbroh submitted this dramatic image. Here is what two students had to say about it: "I chose this photo because it could represent my own bildungsroman. It's simple, nothing extravagant, but for me it represents someone finding happiness because that person knows his or her place in the world. With the outreaching arms and the glowing horizon, this picture can illustrate the freedom one finds once when discovers who one is and accepts it. We live our entire lives trying to figure out who we are and why we are here." -Hillary B. || "I think this picture embodies characteristics of the bildungsroman because it is expressing an accomplishment. This person has overcome an obstacle by him/herself, and it shows how gratifying that moment can be. It also seems carefree. We reach a time in life where we want to be spontaneous and rebellious. I think that reveals a lot about coming of age." -Michelle N. || Thanks for reading, and don't forget to tag photos that exemplify growing up to #bildungsromanproject. Yours truly, @misspotterphd
