#21 What's It Like Growing Up In 4 Continents? ft. Aliaa Gouda | Third Culture Kid, Outsider, Opportunities
Show Notes

Third culture kids are people who were raised in a culture other than their parents' or their nationality. This poem by Ijeoma Umebinyuo epitomized life as a third culture kid: “So, here you are, too foreign for home, too foreign for here. Never enough for both.”

In this episode, we are very happy to have a friend of ours, Aliaa, joining us! Aliaa is a 24 years old PhD student but unlike many others, she has already moved across 4 continents. We chatted about her experience living in 4 different countries, her struggles of being an outsider, how this experience has shaped her worldview, and many more!
