Project Focus is a documentary workshop that asks teens to explore their cultural identity.  This workshop specifically focuses on Third Culture teens that have spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside the parents’ culture(s).  Although elements from each culture are assimilated into the TCK’s life experience, the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of similar background (David Polluck). 

This workshop is funded by an American University of Sharjah (AUS) faculty research grant and is conducted by Associate Professor Susan Smith and Mass Communication (MCM) students.
