Can I consider myself Latino on college applications?
I am a White-Japanese American, and both my parents were born in the U.S. My Japanese-American (born in the U.S) father moved to Brazil when he was 3 years old, he grew up there, then moved back to the US for college. I speak Portuguese, I still have many aunts and uncles in Brazil (half of my dad's extended family still lives there) and my dad who grew up in Brazil still cooks us Brazilian food all the time. However, I do not have a Brazilian last name, nor do I have Brazilian "blood" (Only Japanese/German) because everyone 'above me' on my family tree moved there. The only people who were born there are my dad's youngest sister, and many of my dad's cousins. Would I still consider myself "Latino" on the common app, or is that pushing it?
