Nanani World is a blog for people who wants to understand the real-life stories of a multicultural family. I want to share our experiences with you on how we moved 10,416km away from home to find balance and embrace multiculturalism and diversity.
My name is Hsin from Taiwan, and I am a third-culture kid. I lived a life of moving around since elementary school – Singapore, Hawaii, Boston, and New York! I have been an international migrants for most of my life; culture shock, reverse culture shock, and the stress of relocating seem to be part of my life. Sometimes I feel free, sometimes I feel rootless!
Luana & Maya
My two little girls, Luana and Maya, were born in 2017 and 2018 in Hawaii, joining my life. After they were born, I have been trying very hard to establish family values of our own, trying to seek that balance to teach my little girls. It is challenging to be a multicultural family, but at the same time, we also have a unique perspective in life.
As a result, I gathered up enough courage to go about making a change. My life in Taiwan has ended in 2019, decided to bring my girls moving to Spain. I want to reboot a new life and have a fresh start!
“Nanani World” is inspired by my multilingual toddler; this is how she expresses “where” in Mandarin. I have decided to go with “Nanani World” as it indicates our situation: a multicultural family living with the world in mind and embracing diversity together.
