I definitely don’t know any Spanish other than a few words—un poquito… My grandfather is Costa Rican/Nicaraguan/Panamanian. My mother is Jamaican, so our fathers’ descent is pretty mixed up. My father is Apache. He’s Native American, so I’m 40 percent Native American, which a lot of people don’t know.
