  4. A global citizen

 

Etymology
      Ethiopia, Amharic

Paradoxically, a forenji is the hallmark of a global citizen. A person who belongs nowhere and yet everywhere at the same time.

Forenji’s and TCK’s are the future stewards of our planet, defined by their broad worldview, embrace of all cultures and general knack for adapting to their surroundings.
