In this podcast episode, I chat with Ting, a Third Culture Adult who is currently interviewing fellow TCKs and TCAs about their experiences. I first heard about her project when I went to a TCK event in Shanghai earlier this year. During this event Ting shared her experiences living in China, Singapore, the U.S. and Hong Kong- all before she graduated from college. She had, as many geopats do, a complex mix of conflicting emotions and experiences connected to this multicultural identity. More on her story in a moment.
Although Ting is only in her 20’s, her location trajectory looks like this: China-U.S.-China-U.S.-Singapore-Hong Kong-U.S.-China. This kind of frequent geo change might unnerve some people or even disorient them. But for her, it seems to have solidified who she is globally, not just in relation to one nation, one place, one culture.
If you have any comments or questions about this episode, please feel free to connect with Steph on any social media platform, “stephfuccio”.
Ting has chosen to stay anonymous for this interview. If you have something you’d like her to know, feel free to send it to me and I will forward it to her.
