The question “Where are you from?” isn’t normally a source of stress, unless you’re a Third Culture Kid. It’s hard out there for a TCK, but it’s even harder for a TCT (a Third Culture Teen) — not only stuck between different cultures, but stuck between childhood and adulthood. The Third Culture Teen: In Between Cultures, In Between Life Stages denotes how being an expat means a life of journeying — not only a physical journey around the world but a psychological one within yourself. The author shares her struggles with identity; lacking the confidence to call herself a true Korean. She describes how she has felt like a mish-mash of all the cultures within her, which enhanced her insecurities about her “unfinished,” “incomplete” self.In this book, you’ll hear fascinating stories about: * How Third Culture Teens have overcome their difficulties and used them to their advantage * Third Culture Teen issues such as the role of technology and adjustments to college * Adult TCKs in various sectors of society, ranging from Ruth Van Reken, an acclaimed TCK author, to Lindie Botes, a polyglot YouTuberIf you feel misunderstood and uncategorized as a teenage TCK, you are not alone. This book will help you see that you do belong somewhere.
