Van Nuys, CA
I am Mexican and Salvadoran born and raised in California. My granddad was mix with another race so he looks white but he wasn’t. Many thought that I was full whit and kept saying that can’t Mexican or Salvadoran, it made me feel sad too know that my own community didn’t support me. But the more grew people became accustomed to me and my friends no longer tease about me being to white to be Latina.
