Hi there! In my last post, I mentioned a blog called The Displaced Nation. There, I found Elizabeth (Lisa) Liang. Lisa Liang is a multi-cultural, multi-national actress and author. Aside from her acting career, she hosts writing workshops, and has even presented her ideas and performed at the 2014 Families in Global Transition (FIGT) conference.
You can find her, as I did, on the Displaced Nation blog, interviewing other TCK artists in her column TCK Talent.
I’d like to share with you two excerpts from her play, entitled Alien Citizen- An Earth Odyssey, in which she shares various tales from her experiences growing up across nations and cultures. (I personally think this would make a great TEDx Talk). You can also read more about the ideas behind Alien Citizen– An Earth Odyssey here on The Displaced Nation.

Excerpt 2- Dual Citizen:
