I have lived as an itinerant immigrant my whole life. I lived in 6 countries and 3 continents by the time I was 20. These moves were not due to violence or persecution. But I am always an outsider and never truly belong, even in the countries of my citizenship. I see this a great strength, as a way to be constantly adapting. I came to the United States to study and have now made a life here. Even though I am not a US citizen, I call this place home.
