This study aims to know how learners' identities formed and constructed from individuals with different sociocultural backgrounds. The objective of this study is to investigate how Indonesian undergraduate students’ sociocultural background constructed their identities as English language learners. The research is a qualitative- narrative research consisting of one participant from a university in Indonesia. The data were collected by using an interview to know how the participant learner’s identity was formed and constructed. The interview results were then analyzed through Gee's (2000) Four Perspective of Identity using thematic analysis. From the interview, the research question could be answered on how the participant learner's identity was constructed not only by the assumed one part of identity (Institutional identity), but all four identities are interconnected (Nature, Institutional, Discourse, and Affinity Identity).
