Bakit, por que, why??

Why does everyone in this country think I am either of the following:

  • Under 18 years of age (16, to be more specific)
  • Chinese
  • Native Costa Rican, or even just Latina
  • Not a real American

  1. Sometimes, it is hard to tell what race somebody is, and I do think that an Asian with dark skin can look a bit Latino. But ya…

    I get mistaken for older. People are surprised when I tell them that I’m 19. But if I leave my hair just the right way, I look like I’m 16.
