Are you willing to make a small contribution toward the upkeep of this group?

sure, depends on what that means, but generally happy to help in a way I can...

What has been the most challenging aspect of your TCK/CCK experience?

almost constant restlessness, which translates into wonderful constant learning, but... And a desire for simplicity - so many wonderful experiences, learnings, possibilities, ways of doing things... but I sometimes wish I could just calmly clearly go down 1 path (or have fewer choices, and seriously why are there 42 types of peanut butter?) without occasionally wondering if it's appropriate

What has been the most rewarding aspect of your TCK/CCK experience?

The exploration, quickly fitting into most any situation or talking with almost anyone, the intuition developed in assessing character and individual/corporate/regional culture. And of course meeting other TCKs and having that extra easy communication, curiosity about all kinds of things, etc w/o having to explain thought processes...

When did you become aware that you were a TCK/CCK?

when I was 17, just back in the USA from 4 years of HS in Italy and heard the term the first time.


US Passport, Italian "green card", grew up in 8 countries, dated more, learned a few languages, home is sometimes where my stuff is, other times where friend or family are, so kinda everywhere.
