Do you find yourself in a conflict of cultures at school, home, and the greater Vietnam context? Being a Third Culture Kid can be exciting and confusing…especially as it’s unique role becomes more sought after and a subject of great research.
SSIS is excited to host Dr. Daniel Long on campus to do a special one-hour session for grade 11 and 12 students and parents. Dr. Long currently works at Taipei American School in Taiwan and did his EdD doctoral research on Third Culture Kids with his primary focus in Asia. In this session, Dr. Long will define what it means to be a Third Culture Kid (TCK) and navigating your own identity as a Third Culture Kid. For our grade 12s, you will be making the transition to the next chapter in your life and Dr. Long will help show how you can best use your background as a TCK for your future.
There will be lunch provided for this session. Please RSVP here.
