Tara White is a Mohawk woman from Kahnawake, Quebec. She pursued her master's degree in business administration at the Schulich School of Business in Toronto and became a certified management accountant. But Tara had always dreamed of becoming a writer, so she started taking writing classes in 2002. I Like Who I Am is Tara's first published children's book. Tara lives in Bowmanville, Ontario.
"A gorgeous, sorrowful and yet hopeful novel...Written mindfully and delicately in the voice of an early master, Tara White's second book is both a coming-of-age story and a story that desperately needs to be told. Combining a teenage, punk-rock need for acknowledgment and a nationwide need for attention, Where I Belong is a book that feels urgent and human."--The Globe and Mail
