VIDEO DESCRIPTION: Karla, a brown-skinned woman with shoulder-length black hair wearing a beige sweater is standing in front of DPAN blue wall.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: My parents always have told us to not say we were Mexican but to say we are Americans. I listened. I thought maybe if I said I was a Mexican, I would be judged instantly. I adapted to what I learned but, now I know it is not right. That is white-washing. It will make me appear that I am not proud of who I am. Not proud of where I come from.
