What’s a MK/TCK?

According to Dave Pollock and Ruth VanReken (authors of Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds), a TCK is:   “An individual who, having spent a significant part of the developmental years in a culture other than the parents’ culture, develops a sense of relationship to all of the cultures while not having full ownership in any. Elements from each culture are incorporated into the life experience, but the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of similar experience.” In other words, having left culture #1 (the passport culture), they land in culture #2 (the host culture or cultures), and finding they’re home in neither they connect in culture #3 (“Third Culture”)—a culture not defined by nationality or geography, but made up of others who’ve grown up cross-culturally.
