I thought I was mestizo but maybe not? Mitochondrial Eve

When scientists describe the Mitochondrial Eve, the theoretical most fruitful human, it is described with dark skin, black hair and extremely muscular. Eve would have been very fit since she would have had to look for water in far away places. The reason behind her muscles is the need for eating animals that lived in the Savannah where Eve was supposed to live. The scientists believe that Eve was probably not the only woman at that time, however she was the most fruitful since it has been proposed that her genes are in the lives of billions of people that now live on Earth.
