Born to American parents, Mark McElroy moved to Malaysia when he was one year old and went back to the USA to go to university. Having attended international schools in Malaysia he grew up with the comings and goings of other students while he had a more stable base. He later moved to China and then Korea which is where he currently resides with his wife and son. Listen as Mark discusses his thoughts around whether to raise his child as a TCK.

Mark appreciates the positive aspects of his culturally diverse upbringing provided him with three traits: tolerance, adaptability and an ability to live in the moment, so much so that he has delivered a TEDx talk: Power of TCKs which you can watch on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTSmPne279c.
