Where do I even fit in?

Isabel Walkup,
Waleska, GA

Being a light-skinned Puerto Rican obviously has its perks! I can easily get jobs, I rarely experience racism or discrimination. However, when it comes to fitting in, that is something that doesn’t come easy. I’m too culturally different from my whites friends and I’m not Latina enough for my Hispanic friends. However, I love and take pride in my culture and am excited to bring a bit of spice to every group of people I meet!
