TCKs are cross­culturally mobile children, born into a first culture and raised in one or more additional cultures. Their emergent life­style produces a third culture that lacks national or cultural boundaries. TCKs are marginal, mobile in body, soul, and intellect. Their roots lie in uprootedness. They fit in everywhere, nowhere in particular. They are simultaneously insiders and outsiders. TCKs perform a mediating role between cultures. TCK writers play the role of cultural mediator, while other TCKs move to the center of the worlds of global business and politics.
-Ayla Delin, Istanbul, writing in Time, March 1, 1993
