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


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.”
