A fun fact about me is … I love all things psychology-related and love trying to figure out what other people’s Myers Briggs personality is!
I racially identify as … half white and half Mexican.
When people ask me the question “what are you?” I usually say … “I’m half white, half Mexican, but I’m basically more white because I have light skin and I don’t speak Spanish.”
My favorite thing about being mixed is … It usually comes up in conversation at one point or another with everybody I meet as to what I am, varying from Mexican to white to Asian. It’s entertaining for me! I can pretend I’m something else just because someone thinks I am.
The most difficult thing about being mixed is … I only speak one language, English, fluently. I am always at a disadvantage walking into Mexican-dominant places. This is especially true if people know my last name; they judge me for not knowing Spanish or are confused if maybe I married into the name.
If I could visit anywhere in the world, it would be … Ireland, I think!
If I had one day left on Earth, I would eat … So hard because I love food! Maybe tacos or sushi.
When I was a kid, I wish I would have known that … I’m not out of place just because I’m two different things.
