MKs–missionary kids or missionaries’ kids–are one type of Third Culture Kid.
I'm Sheryl O'Bryan and this is my bio section. I've basically been a missonary for a long time. I used to live in Africa but now I live in Colorado and travel the world taking care of anything and everything that has to do with Third Culture Kids!
Third Culture Kid
A Third Culture Kid is an individual who, having spent a significant part of their developmental years in a culture other than their parent's home culture, develops a sense of relationship to all of the cultures, while not having full ownership in any. Elements of each culture are incorporated into the life experience,but the sense of belonging is in relationship to those of similar experience.
