Fitting into a new friend group can be pretty tricky and challenging, and it was no different for 'Summer House' newbie Mya Allen. The beautiful baker made her big debut on the Bravo show earlier this summer and was introduced to the group by Paige DeSorbo. After setting foot into the Hamptons' house, Mya soon began feeling very isolated from the rest of the group.

But it wasn't until the recently aired episode that the new reality star reached her tipping point and opened up to her co-stars about it. The latest episode featured Italian model Andrea Denver mistakenly addressing Mya as Lexi. This left Mya feeling very upset as she couldn't understand how Andrea couldn't be bothered to learn her name despite spending four weeks together under the same roof. She began feeling like she was invisible and that she had no friends in the house. Thankfully, Ciara Miller sensed Mya's discomfort and came to her rescue.

Ciara patiently listened to Mya's feeling and concerns and reassured her that she too felt the same way when she first joined the group. The conversation then quickly turned to how being a Black person in the Hamptons is a very different experience. Finally, Ciara and Mya decided to bring this up to the group and explain to them about a Black person's struggles in a predominantly White area like the Hamptons.

When Ciara and Mya opened up about their experience of how they had to constantly struggle to break the stereotypes and their challenges of fitting in, the whole group heard them out and empathized with them. Luke Gulbranson was so moved by the girls' speech that he began drawing comparisons to his own struggles of adjusting in the Hamptons' house. Luke explained how when he first came in it was very hard for him to get along with the other housemates and that it took him two years to finally feel like he was a part of the group. Luke's attempts at drawing parallels between his experience and Mya and Ciara's experiences was quickly snuffed out by Kyle Cooke.
