Date: 3:00pm - 6:00pm PDT March 20 Location: Templeton Campus Center – Council Chamber

Templeton Campus Center – Council Chamber

The Third Culture Kids Club will be welcoming Emmy and Telly award-winning producer, speaker, author and educator Teja Arboleda for the 6th Annual TCK Symposium. Third Culture Kids are a group of people who grew up outside of their parents’ culture. We will discuss transitional issues when navigating between cultures that both TCKs and non-TCKs face, and what we can do to make cross-cultural transitions easier. Some key topics will include: assimilation, integration, culture shock and reverse culture shock, traditions or language that cannot be translated, and stereotypes. We will also talk about how these experiences impact identity and relationships with others. Both TCKs and non-TCKs are welcome!
