Why couldn't I fit in?

My Mom is African American creole and native American my dad is Puerto Rican Black and white.I've never really fit in with the blacks whites or the Hispanics. I would pick a group to be with but would be left out because although I understood Spanish I didn't speak it or I wasn't black enough or some other reason. I always felt like I didn't belong. This all changed in high school when I was put in English learning classes (English Spanish and French were spoken to me as a kid so it was very confusing to just use one). The people in the class were just like me most of them understood the feeling. I finally found a place to fit in.
