    “Home has less to do with a piece of soil than a piece of your soul.” Who are you? What defines you? Is it your religion, is it your beliefs or is it your nationality? For my thesis I want to focus on the identity crisis of third culture kids (TCK). I want to address the issue of how TCK’s don't know where their home is. The most difficult question they face is “Where are you from?” TCK’s have grown up outside of their parents’ culture, maybe in many different countries resulting in an identity crisis as to where they belong. In a globalizing economy TCK’s are over 220 million and growing at the rate of 25% annually so it’s significant to help them understand their identity. Home is not necessarily your nationality but your individuality. Home could be a physical place or a mental state. It could be permanent or temporary. Home isn’t a place; it’s a feeling of comfort. I chose to make a home care kit because it bridges the gap between where you live and where you have lived. When people are homesick they want specific items that remind them of home. My homecare kit is called “Taste of Home” which is an outlet that provides you items from various countries. Comfort food from home can go a long way in restoring the mind, body and soul. A package filled with simple, items that will warm the heart, this comfort care package has a delicious taste of home. Read Less
