Multiculturalism ∙ Global Mindset

Hsin Chen

Hsin Chen

Hi, My name is Hsin and I am a third-culture kid from Taiwan, I have two daughters with a multicultural background. We moved 11,000 km from Taiwan to Barcelona where we are now based to embrace multiculturalism and establish family values of our own. 

“Nanani” was how my multilingual daughter expresses “where” in Chinese. I have decided to go with it, meaning living with the world in mind.
