I am a quasi-expat who has lived in multiple countries around the world yet still held a Singaporean passport that my parents got for me when I was very young.

I was born in Delhi, India, and both my parents are of Indian ethnicity. I have gone to International Schools (including UWCSEA in Singapore) my whole life until I came to the US when I was 13. Since then I went to middle school in California, and high school in Virginia where I graduated.

After graduation I had to go back to Singapore for NS where I faced massive cultural shock but managed to fit in, make friends and even succeed.

I'm currently an undergrad at the Stern School of Business at NYU.

From the concerned questions of parents of my expat friends who were considering what the experience would be like for their PR or quasi-expat kids, I thought I'd take my experience and knowledge and put it up on the net to share.

It's been three years since I left, and although my knowledge about the legalities and procedures may be rusty, I still have my experiences of army life (BMTC, OCS, life as an officer) to share.
