characters Don't Ask Me Where I'm From 107 Jennifer De Leon Ó 7 review characters Don't Ask Me Where I'm From Dad did leave one thing behind besides her crazy family Before he left he signed Liliana up for a school desegregation program called METCO And she’s been accepted Being accepted into METCO however isn’t the same as being accepted at her new school In her old school Liliana half Guatemalan and half Salvadorian was part of the majority where almost everyone was a person of color But now at Westburg where almost everyone is white the struggles of being a minority are unavoidable It becomes clear that the only way to survive is to lighten up whiten up And if Dad signed her up for this program he wouldn’t have just wanted Liliana to survive he would have want.
