About Us

UYD Media is a youth media and digital content creation platform by the Third Culture Kid, Global Nomad, and Millennial community and those who love them.  We create and distribute authentic content across all genres and platforms that informs, entertains, and celebrates UYDers who are “using their difference to make a difference” in today’s increasingly interconnected and globally-oriented world.


Our mission is empowering millennials and younger generations to capitalize on their passions and differences while thinking and acting globally. Globalization is not a new phenomena. But as the process continues accelerating there is a need for millennials and other generations to successfully communicate cross-culturally to deliver and act on ideas and information in a changing the world.

We want to inspire the next set of global leaders with content that has a positive impact and engages audiences worldwide.


The Story

After living on four continents in five countries, Tayo Rockson, UYD Founder & CEO, recognized the need to bring awareness and inspiration to the growing Third Culture Kid (TCK) and Global Nomad community and inspire young people to “use their differences to make a difference.”  As Told By Nomads, a podcast featuring interviews with global nomads, Third Culture Kids, and entrepreneurs, was his first effort to bring focus to this emerging demographic.

UYD Media has grown steadily since then in both fans and traffic. The site, which now publishes at least one new story each day, has 1,500 unique visitors each month and Tayo’s podcast has 50,000+ downloads. Content is produced by a highly-talented pool of contributors who are social entrepreneurs and successful leaders in business, while others are committed community activists, international students, and Third Culture Kids (TCKs).
