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.
- From Third Culture Kids: The Experience of Growing Up Among Worlds by Dave Pollock and Ruth Van Reken
Thank you so much for these resources, Miss O! I can’t wait to look through them all when I have more time. I feel such a calling to encourage hurting teenage girls, and you have been a real inspiration to me. Thank you for a consistent and unfailing investment in our lives, even from afar. It means a lot!
As a fellow overseas enthusiast I know this issue probably hits you hard too. Help me fight human trafficking. Check out my bog here for part one of a three part series, providing tangible, easy ways to fight human trafficking. Thanks. Spread the word!
