Third Culture Kids (TCKs) have been a distinct demographic within the population for over four centuries. However, it is only in recent times that focused studies have provided an avenue for these individuals to articulate their unique experiences. Owing to challenges such as language barriers and cultural misconceptions, this nomadic community has often felt marginalized and detached from the narrative of their own lives.

This research endeavors to examine the educational dimension of young TCKs, employing Simone de Beauvoir's Second Sex as a framework to elucidate the psychological, emotional, and physical consequences of the "Othering" phenomenon within today's globalizing world. By utilizing de Beauvoir's seminal work, which explores the systemic subjugation and objectification of women, we aim to shed light on the analogous experiences of TCKs. Drawing parallels between the two contexts, we seek to elucidate the profound impact of being perceived as "Other" and its far-reaching implications on the educational development and well-being of TCKs.
