Chances are, at some point in your life, you'll have to write a brief description of yourself. Hope that you were born and raised in a certain place A, and that over there you got married and you built up your own family. Pithy, easy, straightforward. 

But, if you have experienced islands and dry lands since embryonic age, you have been changing 4 regions and 3 dialects, 2 countries and 3 languages, 23 neighbours and 14 flatmates, just breath and let a striking quote (and some columns afterwards) do the dirty work for you.

 Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it - memory, friends can trust, love of learning
