    She looks white, so her father probably is a colombian “castizo”(3/4 Spanish and 1/4 Native American).

    Even though I’m disappointed that there is no specification as to what type of European ethnicity her maternal side includes, I am sooo happy they listed it as “European” instead of “Caucasian!” Thank you EthniCelebs! Hahaha ;)
