What happens when you grow up in a foriegn country, to parents who are also foriegn-born? When the phrase "home country" is just an administrative descriptor, because you've never seen it as home?
In this episode (2/2), I sat down with Danielle Courtenay, a 25-year-old copywriter who has had trouble grappling with her mixed identity as a Korean-American growing up in Singapore, and working in Paris. Our interview turned into a kind of cultural confession of sorts, touching on subjects ranging from life as a third-culture kid, to the meaning of home and how language can both build and break down cultural barriers.
Have a listen.
