”Where are you from?” We’ve all asked or been asked that question – for some the answer is an easy one but for others the answer is much more nuanced and complex than identifying one’s self with a fixed geographical place.  Author, Taiye Selasi speaks on this during a previous TED talk.

Many of us identify with our place of birth but have a strong affinity to where they were raised, places that have given the greatest experiences. Taiye talks about where we’re considered locals. Very interesting talk – watch the full video here &  think about where you’re from the next time someone asks ”Where are you from?”.
