Someone who, as a child, has spent a significant period of time in one or more culture(s) other than his or her own, thus integrating elements of those cultures and their own birth culture, into a third culture.
So, to make a long story short, I was born in India, moved to Canada when I was almost a year old and lived there until I was 6 before moving back to India for a few months. My family and I then moved to Uganda, which is where I grew up (aged 7-18) and now I live in America.
Even though the statistics here were taken from U.S. TCK's, I find them very easy to relate to.
Although I'm very proud (and always will be) for being a TCK, I do experience reverse culture shock when I go back to Canada.
I admit I am posting this topic because I'm feeling pretty homesick right now but is anyone, or does anyone know any Third Culture Kids?
