Maya Kassandra Soetoro-Ng, a name peculiar to some but dazzling to many, was born in August 15, 1970. She was the product of her father Lolo Soetoro, who worked as a businessman with Indonesian decent and her mother Ann Dunham, an American cultural anthropologist, who happened to be Barack Obama's mother as well. This gives her the same lineage as the ever popular Obama, who is the Democratic Party nominee for the U. S. presidency, making her his official half sister.

Early in her lifetime, she studied in Punahou College Prep School just as her half brother did. Later on, she moved to greater heights finishing her Ph. D.in Education from one of Honolulu's most prestigious public institutions named the University of Hawaii at Manoa, in the year 2006. She worked as a teacher in two separate schools namely Hawaii School for Girls High School and did some evening classes at the University of Hawaii. In support for her brother's phenomenal charge towards the top seat, she proclaimed to give her all out support to Obama in the summer of 2007 even if she had to take a couple of months off from her jobs just to make sure that she is there campaigning beside him.

Moreover, her private family life was filled with bright colors after marrying Konrad Ng, who came from a mix of Chinese-Canadian ancestry and who was also working as a subordinate professor in one of Hawaii's most famous universities. Their love lead to the birth of their only daughter named Suhaila. With diverse cultural and spiritual influences from her family, Maya Kassandra Soetoro-Ng embraced Buddhism as her primary religion.
