Unpacking the Complexity of a Simple Question, Where Are You From?


In a world that is increasingly global yet paradoxically localized, the question, “Where are you from?” has layers of complexity that most people don't consider. This talk dives into the psychology behind this seemingly innocent inquiry. It will challenge the audience to rethink the significance of origin and invite them to understand identity beyond the narrative.
