Make Your Own Passport Reflection-Harrison Diggs

Completing the Make Your Own Passport activity really made me realize how privileged we are to have belonging to a country and to be able to obtain a passport. Hearing the stories of the stateless people who live their lives without the privileges we get to experience really opened my eyes to the power of passports. I was given Nigeria as my country for the passport which has dealt with constant violence committed by the group Boko Haram. The violence has led to people being tortured and thousands evicted or forced to flee from their homes. The safety that we take for granted at home is not experienced by people in other countries such as Nigeria and those that are stateless.
