It was interesting to learn the histories of passports within specific countries. I had never thought about how much weight a passport can hold. One of the most striking aspects of the passport workshop was learning about stateless people. I remember a specific story about a girl from Algeria who went to school in the US and got stuck after her specially-granted travel documents expired. Because she has no citizenship, she can’t leave. She may never see her family again. Her story and this workshop brought my attention to issues that are usually never discussed.
