Student Voices

Webster students are actively engaged in human rights and humanitarian studies – in class, at internships, in the field, and eventually in grad school and/or the workplace.

In order to ensure that students have a voice on this Web site, this page is dedicated to their writing, art, photographs, and opinions. If you are a Webster student with something to contribute, please contact us at humanrights@webster.edu.

 

Human Rights Students

Webster undergraduate Kris Parsons visits the home of her student, Jae, in northern Thailand. The pair, along with friends Boonsoo and Jiew, traveled in the bed of a pickup truck and then walked for two hours to reach Mae Khong village. Parsons spent a year studying and teaching in Thailand through Webster Abroad, and calls Jae “one of the funniest, most intelligent people I have ever met.”
