Uhhh, no way, at all. You definitely haven't been to Spain, a European country.

OP, you look American

Haha, I think a big part of that's due to the outfit. I don't look nearly that interesting most of the time.

I gave them the benefit of the doubt and assumed "some kind of Spanish" meant I looked like I came from a Spanish-speaking country. Made sense since Catbelle said I looked Cuban or Dominican.

You don't look Kenyan, to me you look African American.

Kenyans usually hace a sharp face, not round, and are usually more black. (except the kikuyu's, but these have specific facial features such as a sharp face)

If I would have to say a country in Africa I would say Nigeria, that's also quite logical since that's where most Caraibian and American blacks originally came from.

You look West Indian I'm not just saying that but you certainly don't look Kenyan if anything Nigerian? Or something but you do look Caribbean you have that ''look'' or of course African American. Your ancestry is most probably West African and European.

If Kenyans themselves are telling you, then you likely resemble certain people there. Outsiders won't know as well as people from there...

I don't think you look any African I have met. You look African-American.

Haha, the third photo is the only one that's been airbrushed. I just lucked out and found a photographer that knew what she was doing. I purposely tried to stick with photos that weren't altered, but I like the third photo too much not to post.

Kikuyu!!! That was the group someone suggested I google. Never in a million years did I think someone would randomly name the people I've been trying to remember for over a year.

After looking up kikuyu people, I've only seen a couple of photos that look somewhat like me, though.
