Not only a place to be born.

What does home mean? For me, home is a place where memories are made. We can live in different geographical points where those memories happen. But when it comes to give an answer to the question Where are you from? it becomes difficult to answer without hesitation. All those places that I once considered my home return to my memory. I do not consider belonging to all of them, but they have definitely defined who I am and I feel bound to them for better or for worse. Despite having two passports, it may be the fact of having a birth certificate issued in Mexico which makes it easier for me to place myself on a map, a place in the world, a hospital and a language with which I was born. The first 11 years of my life occurred in Mexico, that's why my constant search to never forget that that country was not just only a place to be born.
