Growing up with a double nationality definitely comes along with some benefits, but not so less with some problems and issues, too.
I’m German. I’m born in Germany. Here’s where I went to school, here’s where I studied (except a couple of years abroad), here’s where I intend to settle down after marrying the guy I love in two weeks.
But I’m also Polish. That’s where my family is from. That’s the first language I learnt. That’s the household I live in. That’s where I spent most of my vacations visiting my grandparents. That’s the language that unifies my fiancé and I.
