“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 in any.  Although elements from each culture are assimilated into the TCKs life experience, the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of similar background.”

– David Pollock in Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds
