KEY QUESTION :

 WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF HAVING DIFFERENT CULTURES? 

Corrigé du résumé The Identity Puzzle

Judging from these different information and testimonies by TCKs we can say that having different cultures is very enriching.

On the one hand it is a source of creativity and open-mindedness for some since they spent part of their lives abroad. It can be liberating and they are able to reinvent themselves.

On the other hand this nomad life can be stressful because they don’t really belong anywhere. They don’t know where their home is.

On the whole they feel like they are chameleons and out of place. It’s a subtle mix of diversity, rootlessness and freedom.

Corrigé de IDENTITY ISSUES

Ifemelu is from Nigeria, she grew up there. She used to speak excellent English with an American accent.

She decided to stop faking her American accent.

It started with a telemarketer who thought IFEMELU was a French name. Then he said she sounded totally American.

It made her feel shameful.

At first she carefully watched friends and newscasters so as to have a perfect accent. Then she was afraid not to remember how to pronounce those American sounds.

Later on she decided to stop faking an accent that was not hers.

Maybe people kept asking her where she was from.

When she first arrived she felt rejected and was laughed at.

It was easier to fit in the US society.
