This I Believe Student Essays
This I Believe



A public dialogue about belief--one essay at a time.

This I Believe is an international organization engaging people in writing and sharing essays describing the core values that guide their daily lives. Some 100,000 of these essays, written by people from all walks of life are archived on their website, heard on

public radio, chronicled through their books, and featured in weekly podcasts.  The project is based on the popular 1950s radio series of the same name hosted by Edward R. Murrow.


Listen to essays from students who have graduated. This spring, current students will explore their beliefs, write, and record their own essays!
