"A Third Culture Kid (TCK) is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside the parents' culture. The TCK builds relationships to all of the cultures, while not having full ownership of any. Although elements from each culture are assimilated into the TCK's life experience, the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of similar background" (Pollock & VanReken, 2001)

There is a blog page for story telling, joke sharing or general conversation. A Page about our society and culture for food for thought. A page dedicated to our background and theory A space created for sharing photos, videos, recipes and ideas with the group. And finally a video page for peoples creations.
