The whitest brown girl I know.

Catherine Marden
El Cerrito, CA

My mother is from El Salvador. My father is from Kentucky. I grew up in rural Oregon. I didn’t know I was half-hispanic until I realized checking the hispanic box on college applications might help me get accepted.
To this day I struggle with my Salvadoran ancestry. I am white. What does that say about my brown blood?
