Story time everyone! In this case, the story is: how did you become an anarchist?

What was your path to becoming an anarchist? Was it because of the influence of a subculture, like punk, hippie or activism? Was it the influence (positive or negative) of a particular relative or teacher? Was it through long hours reading books in the library? Was it through the influence of a friend or group of friends? Was it through a series of troubles with the law? Or was it through spending excessive amounts of time on the internet?
