  • community

  • Meeting like minded TCKs, adult or young, in person or online, it makes all the difference to TCKs. You can speak your mind, don't have to be shy about having friends in 3 continents at age 16 and don't now where home is or where you should go to college. Google 'meetup TCK/Third Culture Kids' or search FB for groups. Most major cities by now offer TCK gatherings.
