Belonging 101 | Megan Dempsey | TEDxWoffordCollege


In her talk, Megan Dempsey describes what it's like to grow up as a "third-culture kid", feeling all her life like she belonged to neither American culture nor Brazilian culture. She explains how we can all learn to detach our sense of belonging from one place and become global citizens who can belong anywhere. Megan Dempsey is a Junior at Wofford, majoring in psychology with a concentration in neuroscience. Originally from Travelers Rest, South Carolina, Meg moved when she was six months old to Belo Horizonte, Brazil, where her family still resides today. Dempsey possesses a unique international perspective that serves to challenge the ways in which we view identity and home. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
