As a transfronterizo student, the trolley has become a symbol of independence. Back in Mexico, my parents drive me around town. In the US, I get myself around by means of public transportation.
Being transfronterizo has helped me develop my identity. It has created a culture clash, between my Amercian and the Mexican sides. Crossing the border has made me grow a great deal in just a small number of months. I would have never thought that a thing that causes me so much discomfort, such as the border, would help me find myself.
