Telling our stories

Posted: 7th February 2012 by admin in Uncategorized

   One of my students this year asked me whether I wanted to reach a broader audience of TCKs and people in between cultures.  Frankly, I had never thought of reaching beyond my own students but realized that in today’s world of electronic connections, it is possible to reach a much broader audience.  But I need the help of those who are scattered throughout the world.


   In the beginning, I’d like to ask you to limit contacts to this group to those who have a TCK (Third Culture Kid) or CCK (Cross-Culture Kids) background themselves.  This is so that we can more openly tell our stories and share our problems without constantly being wary of appearing to “brag” about our experiences or about our ability to speak many languages and navigate the world, at least on the surface.


   I’d like to begin by telling our own stories.  I’ll try to attach the article I wrote many years ago for my high school (American School in Japan) alumni magazine.  I’m still a toddler in terms of computer use, so I would like to ask for your continued support in that area.


    Let’s begin!

    Hello Jiyoon, thanks for your comment. For me the language problem is not speaking but the problem is writing perfect Dutch.

    Does anyone have advice?
