Malcolm grew up in a predominately Protestant area of a city geographically divided along religious lines. He grew up hoping to become a professional footballer like his older brother, and to move away. While not quite achieving this goal, he maintained an interest in football over the years and played for various local teams. He also became closely tied into his home and local area,- his interest in other sports and activities including becoming a member of a marching band. Proud of his Protestant culture and identity, Malcolm also reflected a certain insecurity and pessimism in relation to the ongoing peace process in Northern Ireland. Sectarianism and paramilitary activity peppered his experience of growing up. He participated in a number of cross community projects, both within Northern Ireland and abroad, but lost faith in their value over the years. Feeling unsupported or discouraged at school, Malcolm regretted some of his educational choices, left at 16, was determined to prove to his school teachers that he could be successful, and took up an apprentice training course. Malcolm was supported by his parents over the years, both in terms of his choices around education and career, and his social and leisure interests.
