What if I told you that American Dream with the white picket fence isn't even what the creator of the term intended? Or that his intention of the American Dream was closer to Martin Luther King Jr's idea of American success than the Horatio Alger "rags to riches story?" As third-culture kids, my cousin and I get into the idea of the American Dream and what it means to us, overseas. We also discuss topics like “Is anti-hustler culture, anti Jamaican?” His favorite part about living in Tblisi Georgia and.  And listen through, he drops the most incredible gem for all of us out there on the road to enjoy it that much more.
