Not sure what a "life story" interview is, but I would say: how has your life and personal events in your life shared you in a way that makes you identify with the company's mission and values.

I would agree with above comment. All they need to know with this life story interview is how you are as a person, what drives you and why? They are very particular about the overall aptitude and attitude of the person and their personality. They wanna learn what motivates you in life and what your outlook if in general. Shopify is huge on culture so these are key things they expect every employee to have. All the best!
