Kacey Ng (BA, Sociology, Honours)

Kacey Ng (伍啟詩) is a Hong Kong-Chinese-Canadian Settler on traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tseil-Waututh) peoples. She traces her ancestral home to being from 开平 (HoiPing) and 台山 (ToiSan), although much of her extended family resides in 香港 (Hong Kong). Much of her work is informed by her continuous journey in learning about her heritage and how that impacts her positionality and identity.

She embodies an eager curiosity towards relationship building and connecting with people through places while critically examining the intersections of oppression and marginalization in ethnic minority spaces. Kacey graduated with an Honours in Sociology and a minor Asian-Canadian Asian Migration Studies with intentions to pursue her Masters in Urban Planning. She is now working in balancing teaching assistantships and research assistantships, including, but not limited to the creation of interactive walking tours in Chinatown as an educational tool for students to understand the role of gentrification on Chinese Seniors and local businesses.

Apart from her studies, Kacey can be found on long (very long) walks across the city, making food with / for friends or some variant of procrasti-baking.
