  • Category: Author

Nancy Ng started working on her first book, No, Really, Where Are You From?, in 2005, because she was tired of having to explain why a Chinese looking girl ended up being born in Venezuela and has a Canadian accent. The constant curiosity from others of her cultural backgrounds eventually lead to writing this book. She knows cultural identity is a sensitive topic that can be up there with religion or even politics, but we need to talk about it. Through her graduate work, she was able to further explore cultural identity and eventually her Chinese identity with No, Really, Where Are You From?.

Nancy has travelled the world extensively absorbing and exploring as much of the diverse, rich, and colorful histories and food, around the planet. She doesn’t know if she can ever break her travel addiction! She also loves to climb some of the world’s highest mountains; she also loves to rock and ice climb, devour over biographies, and she can’t get enough of the property/real estate channel.
