Not sure why the need to pick so many holes in what was simply offered as general information in case people were unfamiliar with it
Sorry, I'm not trying to cause trouble or to pick holes in your general information - I just don't understand why you say she has dark skin and how that could be the reason for her looking younger than her age. She looks white to me? Sorry if I am missing something that is obvious to you.
I'm white and nobody ever believes my age, either - people have mistaken my partner for my father although he is a few months younger than me!
