Wait, But You Don’t Look Mexican

Chloe Servin,
Miami, FL.

I’ve gotten that phrase countless times. Pupils, teachers, when I meet new people.
I currently am pale with slight color, but when I was younger I’d go outside every day and I was active, so I had a much darker color, plus I’d also go to the pool almost daily.

One summer I got too dark and my mom didn’t let me go to the pool for 2 weeks.
Funny, I know. I stopped being as active and stopped going outside. Over time I began losing my color, and I became pale.
I still tan quit quickly and don’t burn often, but I just haven’t had the time to be outside and try to catch some rays.
This summer I’m going to try to learn some Spanish and get some sun.
