    Yes.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    You can say "My name is..." or "I am" or "I'm" or very conversationally "Elaine, from Malaysia."
