The only white person here? (How does it feel)

Rebecca Zavala,
Los Angeles, CA.

Well, to start I’m not even white… I get this ALL THE TIME. People assume I’m white or Asian, or a mix of the both. It is not insulting to me now, but growing up it was a little irritating having to continually explain that I am Mexican American. At my job in high school, an interracial couple that was White and Japanese approached me saying I looked exactly like their mixed children. I think it’s funny when people guess my background now.
