    Breaking Boundaries with Alaa Balkhy

    Breaking Boundaries with Alaa Balkhy

    This week we sat down with the inspiring entrepreneur, multidisciplinary creative, the Minna Minkum podcast host and a fellow cultural misfit, Alaa Balkhy (@alaa), to talk about the various ways she continues to break boundaries. We discussed Alaa's experiences living between cultures,  pursuing a creative career in the Arab world and  reclaiming power and independence. That isn't all though, as Alaa gave us a new definition of 'home' (which is our new favourite!) and told us all about how her culture mocktail has influenced her outlook and work.

Love finding more people I relate to!

I heard about the “phenomena” of Third Culture Kids last year, and instantly felt legitimized for not feeling like I have one place to tie my identity to. Rather it’s the collection of places and cultures that make up who I am. The people I feel most “at home” with (because home isn’t a place for me) are other people like this; other TCKs. I enjoy hearing about the unique cultural patchwork of every single one, and getting to hear about your experiences is refreshing and enjoyable. Thanks for starting a podcast community for us!
