Merrin Ke, a Hongkonger born to mainland parents, boards a train to the Hong Kong-Shenzhen border, in Hong Kong, China, November 7, 2019. Merrin Ke, 23, grew up in Shenzhen but got her masters degree from Hong Kong's Polytechnic University. She had flitted easily between both sides, up until recently, when she moved to Shanghai.
