Latina. Raised White. Unaccepted by all.

Both my mother and I grew up in white culture even though we are both from ‘Hispanic’ descent. But because we do not look white, we weren’t accepted into that culture even though we were raised in it. The same vice versa. We were born Latina, but we weren’t raised in that culture, so we weren’t seen as true Latinas, and therefore, also unaccepted.
