This is not your ordinary travelogue. Join me in uncovering the heart-wrenching and inspiring stories that have shaped Michael Sullivan’s life. Stay tuned for a peek into a world where personal growth and societal impact collide in unexpected ways. Trust me, this is a narrative you don’t want to miss.

In this episode, you will be able to:

  • Navigate the unique challenges and growth opportunities of being a Third Culture Kid.
  • Unleash the power of personal storytelling through memoir writing for self-discovery and connection.

My special guest is Michael Sullivan

As the host of the “Where Are You From? A TCK Podcast,” Michael Sullivan brings a wealth of personal and professional experiences to the table. Growing up and living as an expat in different countries, from Thailand to the Philippines, and now residing in Turkey as an English language expert, Michael’s journey as a Third Culture Kid (TCK) is both captivating and insightful. His forthcoming book, “Building Bridges: Can We Love and Relate in a Polarized World,” dives into the impact of immigration and the challenges of cultural identity, offering a fresh and empathetic take on these pertinent issues. With his unique blend of memoir storytelling and global perspective, Michael is a compelling guest for anyone seeking personal growth, self-awareness, and a deeper understanding of the world’s diverse cultures.

We don’t have to be completely comfortable with the way other people think, but we certainly can learn something from them. – Michael Sullivan
