Have you ever been asked questions like “where are you from?” or “where do you call home?” and you hesitate because you wonder which version is the best to regale to the interviewer? For those of you who are nodding vehemently, don’t worry, you are not alone. For those who can answer the above questions easily and may be confused by the hesitation of such a simple question, CULTURS.guru can help you understand.
Based in Colorado and founded by Doni Luckutt, CULTURS.guru is a volunteer-based global multicultural magazine celebrating the unique perspectives of Global Nomads, Third Culture Kids, and racially-blended and culturally-blended people. Basically, it is a place where globally minded folks can come together and share their stories and interests.Topics can include fashion and beauty, political matters, immigration, fitness and pretty much anything under the sun. You’d be surprised the number of stories and people you can connect with.
“Assessing someone’s background from outward appearance isn’t enough” anymore because where you grew up might not be where you were born and how you were raised may not be the same as your parents. So it’s not uncommon to find yourself hesitating when asked where you call home and it’s okay to identify yourself with two cultures and be proud of it.
Although just under a year old, CULTURS has already attracted a large database of culturally blended people. On top of that, CULTURS is also very involved with several non profits all over the world, especially ones that are culturally blended on way or another.
As a global community, we are no longer “confined” to supporting only local or more-recognized charities but charities around the world. CULTURS has partnered with Nairobi, Kenya-based Africa Yoga Project; Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.; Random Acts of Theatre from Selma, Alabama; Los Angeles, California-based The Kis Foundation and Women’s Yarn Project from Guatemala to raise funds and actively work with them in maintaining their mission. Whether it is funding or volunteering, CULTURS travels to where the non profits are based and has become a strong part of each non profits’ mission.
