Third Culture Kids By Khaleejesque

Remember when Khaleejesque launched their 1st-print issue a couple of weeks back? Well, I’m still reading through the articles every other night and the one I’m about to share here is by far, my favorite!

The reason for which I absolutely loved this article is because it touches a personal base; it talks about being born within a certain nationality, culture, or boundaries, living somewhere else that is not your home-country, while feeling it’s home. You end up being a ‘Third Culture Kid’, and growing into a ‘Third Culture Adult’, moving around, taking the best of the cultures you experience, loving each one like it’s your own, embracing the world like no one else can do! For this I say I’m a Third Culture Adult and proud!

The article is by Ghadeer Al-Otaibi, one of the editors at Khaleejesque, I loved the way it’s tweaked! If you are a Third Culture Kid, or Adult, your thoughts will float around as you read her story! You would involuntarily go down memory lane and indulge in your reminiscence.

This is my most admired part of the whole article:

It is in Australia where I learnt what I was. It is where I realized I wasn’t your average Kuwaiti, not a Spaniard, a Lebanese or an American. It was here I realized I was a blend of all of the cultures that I had lived in, forming my own wave and tastes in lifestyle, music and art. Despite the complexities, now that I have grown from being a Third Culture Kid into an adult Third Culture Kid, I can truly say that my experiences have given me the greatest gifts one could ever ask for. ~Ghadeer Al Otaibi
