Tell us about some of the places you grew up in?

I was born in Japan and raised in Poland and Cyprus. I spent a significant part of my childhood in the States- in Arlington, though I never fit in. I spent my teens back in Japan and in England. As an adult I've lived in Philadelphia, London (several times), New York, and most recently in Amsterdam. I am the product of the international school circuit. I feel most at home when I am living abroad as a foreigner and therefore not expected to be like everyone else.


Hi, I'm a foreign service brat and generally consider myself an international nomad. I've always had difficulty really connecting with other Americans and I don't feel fully a part of any one culture. I'm hoping to meet others who can relate.
