Expat Shame and Guilt: Managing Feelings of Shame and Guilt in Order to Reach Your Destiny
“When we leave our tribe, we begin to identify ourselves anew within a different cultural landscape. We have the opportunity to defy those things that limited us within the tribe.”

I started writing for Global Living Magazine after I won a writing residency in Washington D.C. and attended the Families in Global Transition Conference. Through my participation in the conference with the support of a ParfittPascoe Writing Residency Scholarship, I became connected with a vibrant and engaged group of expats from around the world. Among the many innovators and entrepreneurs dedicated to improving the lives of expats and their families, I found Global Living Magazine to be a highly valued resource.
