Destinations With Doni -- Megan Norton On The 'Identity Orbits' of Third Culture Kids


Welcome to the DESTINATIONS WITH DONI PODCAST: Where we Explore your Cultural Passions.

Embrace your cultural identity as we bring you tools to Live in Full Color.

On this Destination: Relationships.

As a Third Culture Kid (TCK), how do you connect with other people without sounding arrogant or elitist or turning them off?

How long does it – or should it – take to get a sense of belonging?

How do you describe who you are without saying you’re a TCK?

How do you talk to your family – nuclear or extended – about your identity as a TCK?

Is the term “Third Culture Kid” more prevalent now than it was years ago?

Third Culture Kid author, consultant and researcher Megan Norton delves into these questions in this episode of the Destinations With Doni podcast.

“Foundationally, a story is not complete until it is told, heard and understood,” she says.
