How do you know you are a TCK?

  • To everyone’s confusion, your accent changes depending on who you’re talking to.

  • You have a love-hate relationship with the question “Where are you from?”

  • Your circle of best friends is as politically, racially, and religiously diverse as the United Nations.

  • You get nervous whenever a form needs you to enter a “permanent address.”

  • Love it or hate it, you have a strong and well-informed opinion on the I.B. system.

  • And, no matter how many you say, good-byes never get easier.
