A few weeks ago I was contacted by Paula Vexlir, a registered clinical psychologist who lives in Argentina. She leads continuous research on Spanish-speaking expats to increase awareness of specific ways to support the Spanish-speaking expat community. She shares this information with companies and Global Mobility experts through her website www.expatpsi.com. Paula also currently gives lectures and workshops on her research with a prevention-oriented approach.
On Expatpsi, Paula created an Expat Advice section. She asks other expats to share advice based on their own overseas experience. When Paula invited me to share my Third Culture Kid (TCK) experience through a brief interview, I was both delighted and challenged. Her questions prompted me to uniquely reflect on my first few years of living abroad. They also helped me pinpoint my biggest regret as a TCK, what I would do again while living abroad, and what I would encourage other expats to do during their move overseas. Paula recently published the interview on her website in English and Spanish. Click here to read the interview.
