STORY: Passing — and not Passing — as a Latina
By Carla Zanoni
“To me, being ‘Spanish’ felt like both an asset and a burden. On one side of the house where I eventually spent my childhood, my best friend’s grandparents were thrilled when we moved in. We were an exotic reprieve from the dull Americans on the block. On the other side of our house, a childhood friendship ended.”
