Cross-Cultural Experience: I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia, the son of an Aramco Engineer. I attended boarding school at the American School in Switzerland before coming to the USA for college in 1973. I considered Saudi Arabia my home and discovered I was lost when I came to the “States”, as we called it. I did not realize that the emotional and social difficulties I experienced were common to third culture kids: I had not even heard about TCK until years later. Perhaps that was part of the reason I decided to become a psychologist, an unconscious desire to try and understand what I was struggling with. I recall the first time I went to a therapist at one of the colleges I attended (1 of 4). I told him about feeling “different” and lost, and I tried to describe what it was like to grow up in Saudi and the life I had been accustomed to. He told me I sounded “arrogant” at which point I quit seeing him. It was the beginning of a realization that most people don’t  understand Third Culture Kids and the emotional challenges (and rewards) of the life we were given. Living in New Hampshire I have had little opportunity to council other TCK’s, but I would like to do so. I anticipate retiring in another three or four years, and I plan to shift my career to do more with helping expats and TCK’s.
