You don’t have to look too far for expats to be proud.
They’re often called expatriation, and it’s not just about moving to another country to work.
In many ways, expatriating is the identity of choice for expat families in the United States, and they’ve embraced it like never before.

When you move to another city, you’re often not sure where to find the same food, clothing, and cultural amenities.
“Living here gives you a bit more freedom,” says Sivan, an American who was a member of the Dutch Parliament in the Dutch Democratic Republic before coming to the U
