So my Dad’s Scottish-Argentine and my Mum’s African-Spanish – and the political situation in Argentina was getting so dire that they wanted their children to grow up in an environment without fear. We all really resented them for [leaving Argentina] and now we look back, we’re like thank you so much because they gave us such an opportunity in life.
It is not clear from these descriptions if her father is an Argentinian of Scottish descent, or is of mixed Scottish and Argentinian ancestry, or if her mother is of mixed Spanish, English, and African, ancestry, or has citizenship or residency in multiple countries.
Her grandparents live in Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain.
