young global nomads

just read through the State Dept's Young Global Nomads feature, which are a bunch of writings from children of diplomats living abroad. an interesting read. lines like "At the time, I was nine, so I really didn't understand the world, fully." are just adorable.

and then toward the end there are some fascinating entries, like that of a kid writing a letter to their distant friends, or a teenager writing about the bombing of her former church in pakistan.

last time i was in belarus, i was told i was becoming a "third culture kid" myself. in spite of not having actually grown up overseas, i had absorbed enough of the culture to become an amalgam of cultures. it's interesting to read these accounts from real third culture kids.

Hi,

I am a TCK myself and am trying to find other TCKs! I just opened a shop at:

www.cafepress.com/tck

If you could spread the word that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Shoshauna
