On September 20th, 1932, (precisely 80 years ago) this famous black and white photograph was taken. The 11 men, who are supposedly Irish immigrants, are on top of the then-construction Rockefeller building, enjoying a skyline view of New York City during lunch time. No one truly knows who they are or the photographer’s name, or […]

I’m a Third Culture Kid

Posted: 20th September 2012 by admin in Uncategorized

Taken from my blog: Who are Third Culture Kids? A global nomad. International school alumni. A world traveler. A military kid.

Part of my story is that I definitely don’t feel that I belong anywhere in Canada, I’ve been right across this country and most of the people (from my experience) are VERY anti-social and egotistical, it’s absolutely horrendous.

Checking-in. 1 year after I discovered TCKID, I thought it was time for a re-visit. I have to thank this website/community so much, as it had definitely helped me find who I am, accept who I am, and live life to the fullest. I believe I have accepted my fate – I am still living […]

So, when some time in my late teens, I stumbled into the realisation that the majority of my heroes were not heroines, and that fewer still shared my ethnic origins, for a while I was angry. I was angry with the industry for the limited diet they’d been serving me all my life and angry […]
