Kathleen grew up moving from country to country. She was born in Burma and lived in Mexico, Colombia, Nigeria, Switzerland and the US. Expat Alien takes you through her memories of each new place and the challenges of adapting to and adopting each new country. With each move there was a chance to re-invent herself and learn about new cultures and geography. Her hardest move was to her passport country where she suffered from “reverse” culture shock. As an adult she finally learned about her own tribe, the Third Culture Kids, and that others had experienced the same ups and downs of being a global nomads. Kathleen took it a step farther and crossed over to being an adult expat in Russia and raising her own Third Culture Kid.
