Can I identify as Hispanic? (Legitimate, Urgent)?

I'm 100% sure I'm 1/8 Mexican and possibly another fraction of Spanish, however this hasn't been confirmed yet. Although, I carry a white surname and my father is completely white. My mom is 1/4 Mexican. I didn't learn Spanish until I was a teenager and I learned from my friends. However, my entire life, I've identified as "part" Hispanic, and I currently identify with Mexican culture in my house through food, music, and I used to celebrate some holiday traditions in my early childhood.
