“Honestly I wish I looked more Latin so I could feel closer to my father and be prouder of my heritage…to wear my heritage on my skin. It’s just hard sometimes when no one thinks u are who u are…and everyone wants u to be something else,” she said on Instagram, reports aceshwobiz.com.

Bella added: “Being Cuban/Latin in most people’s eyes means having dark eyes, dark hair, and dark skin, I’m naturally blonde I have hazel brown eyes and I try not to go in the sun because skin cancer runs in my family I put an effect on this video, and looking at it I like me looking tan with darker hair.”

Bella’s sister Dani Thorne replied: “Well said.”
