Seeing all these expats with their wives and kids reminds me of my school years in São Paulo at the French “Lycée”: most of my friends were either expat kids, jewish or franco/belgo-brazilian kids…
A Third Culture Kid (TCK) is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside the parent’s culture.
The TCK frequently builds relationships to all of the cultures, while not having full ownership in any.
Although elements from each culture may be assimilated into the TCK’s life experience, the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of similar background.
The following 31 signs you are a TCK are SOOO true 🙂
I wonder how my daughter Leia will be a Multi Third Cultural Kid… Mexican mother, Belgo-Brazilian from polish descendants father, born in Spain, will grow up in Panama. For now she has 4 passports… (BRA, BEL, MEX, ESP)
