This is a collection of works and ideas of International Studies students at Texas A&M University. We have collected many stories of migrants and refugees from around the world that have been portrayed though documentaries and film. These stories reflect the many of the reasons why people choose to move around the planet. Some are escaping persecution and tyranny, while others are purely in search of economic opportunity. Regardless of reason, we hope this website captures a snapshot of what global migration looks like today.


We would like to give a special thanks to our Professor, Dr. Jocelyn Frelier, for guiding us through this semester and challenging this class to think critically about issues surrounding Global Migration. Welcome to Texas A&M and we hope you are here for many years to come.

We would also like to thank the Texas A&M Department of International Studies and College of Liberal Arts for fostering inclusive spaces where students can thrive.

To the students of the INTS 407 course, we want to thank you all for being so patient with the honors team as we created this project. It was amazing to work with such a diverse, open-minded, and intelligent group of students who all share a passion for International Studies, language, culture, and humanity. Your cooperation and input made putting this project together worthwhile. Simply put, this project would not have been possible if not for all of your hard work. Best wishes to each of you as our semester comes to a close.

Lastly, we would like to thank Texas A&M University. We love this institution and are proud to call ourselves Aggies. A-WHOOP!
