Libby Stephens, Expert on Third Culture Kids Visits Graded (October 21 - 23)

Third Culture Kids

"A third culture kid is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside their parents’ culture. The TCK frequently builds relationships to all 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."

-Pollock & Van Reken
