Chat with Maryna: What’s it like being a “Third Culture Kid” or “Global Nomad”?
- America House (map)
Where are you from? What a simple question… but for some, the answer is complex!
Come join Maryna Markowicz, a child of diplomats, as she explores the concept of “Third Culture Kid” syndrome or “Global Nomad.”
In 1952, an American sociologist and anthropologist, Dr. Ruth Useem, defined this concept as “a child who spends a significant period of time during his or her developmental years growing up in a culture outside the parents’ culture.” Before Maryna learned how to walk, she already knew how to fly. As a global nomad, she shares a sense of rootlessness which means that “home” is everywhere, but nowhere at the same time. Maryna was born in Vienna, Austria to Ukrainian-American parents. She has lived in Slovakia, Ukraine, Georgia, and the United States of America. In every place Maryna has lived or traveled, she has absorbed certain cultural aspects of the country and made them her own. In 2016, Maryna decided to move to her passport country after eighteen years “abroad”. She is now a rising junior at Boston University and has had the opportunity to travel to 27 countries!
She is eager to share her life story and learn about yours.

Ландшафти на пейзажах Аліни Комісар досить умовні й частково складаються з реальних краєвидів, від яких перехоплює подих. Художниця створила роботи, колористика яких перетворює Карпатські гори у казкові, фентезійні чи навіть езотеричні ілюстрації.
