Her fashion sense explains her natural and simple life style, when some people are arguing or fighting she prefers to keep away, doesn't like to interfere in other people's problems unless they ask for help (Mexican law of no interventionism with the other countries) .
you can easily have an amuzing and funny chat with her, but at first sign she is a little formal with you.anyway she can familiarize really fast, so this stage doesn't last long.
With close friends she is a bit different, she always tries to protect and give advices to the others like a mother or big sister. (because she is one of the oldest countries in america), likes to make jokes and make the others laugh.
She is really insecure and has a low self esteem, but usually she doesn't show it and prefers to be the strong woman. she is the empiric type of person, she needs to learn everything in a slow way, or by experience. Likes to give help but doesn't like to be helped a lot.

►Weaknesses: She is really empathic, can pass for a baby cry when the conversation gets really emotional. can handle other person's problems really well but can't deal with hers.

You'd better not make fun of it or make any coment because she will feel ofended (like most mexicans---err).
-Speak Spanish, but her english is lack and her mexican accent is really notorious when she speaks it.
- If she is excited, she tends to swear a lot ( mexican slangs), she is quite polite when she talks but if you're close to her (and speak spanish)
She'll talk to you just like any other mexican would do. (yes, I am talking about those mexican slangs, güey.).
-Her accent is really different, she doesn't speak like northern or southner person, her accent is like the mexican dubs that are more neutral.
-Her fashion sense is mostly a mix betwen mexican and boho for casual days, but can dress really formal time to time.
ships?: err I don't think so-- she enjoys the romance but probably gets awkard when someone likes her.
probably CubMex or RomaMex is my ship in this?? idek. ships are not really important here tho.
Sadly, Mexico is a excluded country, the south american countries have their own problems, Mexico ignores central american countries (except when the inmigration is there...that's when Raquel gets really angry yo), she is more friend of the northern american countries (Canada and the U.S) , Europe and Asia.
but well let's see---
Cuba : Cuba is an old friend, and Raquel closest friend in this AU. they could know each other since they were kids,
when (prob) raquel was his babysitter or something similar. They are really cheerful and cute with each other, but Cuba gets angry when Raquel gets really submissive with everybody, he complains a lot about this, and tries to protect her from those people who likes to take advance of her, anyway Raquel doesn't like to be protected and this is when the problems start.
Colombia : Colombia is the closest friends Mexico has in south america, along with Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
For some reason Colombia and Mexico are really close culturally, Raquel loves the Colombian dramas, the Cumbia and other colombian rythms,
Mexico has its own Cumbia, that is A mix between Colombian and Northern's rythms, She likes to gossip a lot with Colombia and talking about tv shows.
Probably Colombia can't deal with Raquel's personality (often).
Venezuela : Mexico and Venezuelas relationship is really weird and difficult to explain, sometimes they act like friends and the next day they're hating (this could be like a passive Mexico/argentina relationship) they have really different points of view ( politics--- Venezuela is against the U.S While Mexico is a ..well you know ). anyway Raquel can handle her really well and she really loves her and will try to protect her ,no matter what.
Ecuador : They are not really close, so probably Raquel treats him with her formal side.
South Italy : Raquel and Lovino are close friends, not as close as Cuba and her, but probably she knows more about him than the other latin countries, Lovino seems Raquel as a loving and nurturing person, and probably the only one who can deal with him (apart from Antonio) .
She likes to talk and spend time with him, and probably he is overprotected, she seems him as her little brother, even when (probably) he is older than Raquel.
Portugal : Raquel will be really REALLY polite and formal with her, as her boss ,older person and someone who doesn't share anything (not even the language) with her.
