It’s really about feeling like you belong. It’s about having someone who understands you and not having to explain it.
That was Culturs Magazine’s own Doni Aldine, who was featured on Rocky Mountain PBS this month!
Aldine talks about her Trinidadian mother and Costa Rican father, as well as growing up as a Third Culture Kid (TCK) in Spain, Turkey, Germany and the United Kingdom.
For Aldine, it’s all about “having that sense of understanding and not having to explain yourself all the time, being able to have inside jokes with people you barely know, and feeling like you belong, because really, most of the time, most people don’t understand you.”
PBS also shows Aldine’s work in the multicultural space and “21st Century Diversity”:
Diversity is something that really shapes our lives in a way that makes it more positive and shapes it in a way that gives us more empathy, that’s the goal. You want to be able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. It’s really about feeling like you belong and someone understanding you without having to explain it.
