Omid a Successful example of a second generation raised overseas

If you were born to parents who were immigrants, you may feel that you have lived “between” two cultures all your life. The identities of second-generation immigrants are complex and dynamic. Unlike your parents, your sense of self does not revolve solely around your heritage from the old country. But neither is it a purely Eurocentric integration into the new country. Thus, you will be constantly in a “transition zone” whose complexity cannot be put into words. Colonialism, war, and immigration policy are some of the broader sociological factors that shed light on identity and acculturation.
