Description
 

The question "Where are you from?" isnt normally a source of stress, unless youre a Third Culture Kid. Its hard out there for a TCK, but its 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, youll 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 YouTuber


If you feel misunderstood and uncategorized as a teenage TCK, you are not alone. This book will help you see that you do belong somewhere.
