can we find our identities in between the places we’ve been?
A third culture kid (TCK) is someone who was raised in a culture that differed from that of their parents during their early developmental years. Throughout their lives, TCKs often question their identities as they become immersed in multiple cultures.
Today, there are more people living transnational lives than ever before. The assimilation into different cultures has become more prevalent as individuals travel and move away from the cultures they grew up in and into ones that are less familiar. Having immigrated myself, I became interested in the ways we build our own cultural identities, and my work investigates how these identities are shaped by the moments of transition and integration that are experienced within cultures.
