Nada con tu cultura ( to swim in your culture)- like many Mexican Americans, the mermaid lives in 2 worlds and must survive in both. While traveling in Mexico, people from Mexico were telling me that I wasn't a real Mexican while on the other many in the United States devaluated my citizenship (a memory from my youth). SURVIVE OR GET FRIED!!!
