How it feels to work with Expat Teens:

Expat Teens have a perspective on life and the world that is quite different from most teens in a monocultural setting. Their international, transient lifestyle, as well as their understanding of cultures that are sometimes drastically different from their own, makes them appear older and more mature than their chronological age. It’s refreshing to work with a group of students who are conscious of the world around them, as that perspective can be helpful in allowing them to put their personal issues into context. At the same time, however, they are just like other teens with typical concerns and difficulties that accompany being an adolescent. So in that respect, it’s nice to know that they are “just like everybody else.”
