“Where’s home” is a confusing and daunting question for Third Culture Kids. Our hearts are connected to many cultures and countries, making it extremely difficult to define home. I decided to base my latest article for UYD magazine on TCKs’ thought process behind the question. I asked my twin to design a picture for the post.
As I was uploading my article to UYD magazine, my little sister peered over my shoulder, eyes glued to my laptop screen. I showed her the picture.
“Like it?” I asked.
She half-grinned at me and nodded, reading the names of the countries we both love dearly. She stared at the question “Where’s home” written in red ink in the center of the picture. Forehead wrinkled and nose scrunched, she solemnly questioned, “Which one do you choose?”
I cracked up laughing. Point proven. “Where’s home?” is a complicated question for TCKs.
