Hi, i'm a freshmen at Portland State University. All of my life i've been commented on my last name saying that it's not mexican and that me and my family aren't from Mexico. I was actually born in Guadalajara, Jalisco and i consider my self 100% Mexican! My grandpa and great grandfather where very tall and blue eyed, which is probably why i get commented on my physical saying i don't look Mexican. I mean is there a general appearance all Mexican's must fulfill? Me and my sister are light complected and have colored eyes, but that doesn't mean where un-Mexican. Through research i've found that Urzua is from the Basque region in spain also known as the Euzkadi region. It's original spelling is Ursua, due to the fact that many european settlers had to alter their surnames it became Urzua. Any feed back appreciated...
