HOME KEEPS MOVING
By Heidi Sand-Hart
I do not come from one country, but four.
Ever since I was born, we have been on the move.
I haven’t lived in the same house for more than four years, I have been to around nine different schools, lived on three continents, been to more than forty-two countries (and counting).
For the majority of my life, my belongings have been scattered in boxes across three different continents, only to be rediscovered every few years.
My definition of ‘normal’ strays about as far from the conventional mold as it possibly could.
I had a highly unusual childhood with hints of normality blended in.”
(Excerpt from Chapter One)
The story unravels/discovers the many challenges faced by global citizens but focuses on the strengths that such a varied upbringing has; the pressures that come with being Third Culture Kids and having your decisions reflect on your parents.
Heidi has incorporated short contributions from other TCKs in order to give varying insights and viewpoints.
The book discuss subject matter such as:
- Confused Loyalties
- Swimming in Two cultural oceans
- Social Pressures
