And she definitely doesn’t look Italian in the photo. At best she might be able to pass as MAYBE Welsh based on her features but even so she still seems a little “off” in the facial features.

So shes basically Greek and Romanian because Cuban people are mixs such as black, spanish and other type of European. Shes beautiful at first I thought she was Italian. But a lot of Greek’s look Italian.

She has Jewish ancestors that lived in Greece and Romania. She probably has some Spanish blood from her Cuban side though.
