Or will she sound more white even though she really isn't.
For instance an Asian girl vs a westernized Asian girl or native Latina vs westernized Latina. I think there must be differences between native girls that came to western countries at much later ages vs girls raised in westernized countries from a very early age.
It depends how westernized her family, as well as how westernized the crowd she hangs around with socially is.
For example, around where I live, there's a suburb where 99% of the population living within it is made up of south-east Asians. I doubt that an Asian girl who grows up there will become sufficiently 'westernized'. If she grows up in an area/neighborhood filled with more white people, though, she won't 'maintain her roots' quite as well.
Depends how strong is the family root and how traditional is the family.
Had a Mexican friend born and raised in america go visit family in Mexico and they made fun of her for being so white lol
Some do some don't. I was raised in the West, and I'm half western, but I really stick strongly to roots on my other side too. I know a few people like me and a few who you'd never guess had other backgrounds.
What I've noticed as a general rule, is that the first western born generation is a mix. They are largely westernized, but retain much of their heritage passed down from parents and relatives. The next generation only retains a small amount of their heritage. More in name only, than any way that affects their personality. By the third generation, the heritage is pretty much completely gone.
Varies from person to person. There are some Asian people who are little more than white people dressed differently (me). Then you have those who are far more invested in the culture and learn all the nuances of it.
Generally if they grew up in a similar community her heritage will be stronger since they interacted with others from the same ethnic group.
I think it depends on the girl, her family for instance I know many immigrant families who speak their native language at home. Will she be more in tune with her new country than someone who moves later in life, yes but how much she adapts is up to her.
