Third Culture Kids
Third Culture Kids have been defined as children who spend a significant amount of their development years(1-18 years) away from their parents’ culture or their passport country. They develop their own internal third culture examining and adopting different aspects of the cultures they are exposed to.
Further, these kids share common characteristics. Among them is they sometimes don’t feel at “home” anywhere but do feel at home with others with the same experience of living internationally.

Too foreign for home,
Too foreign for here…”
