This article from Medium published by the International Organization for Migration reports that the YouTuber phenomenon has a particularly interesting characteristic: many of them are new arrivals to their current locations! They’re migrants! For these YouTubers, talking about their experience in a new host country has become a popular theme for their videos. They talk about cultural differences and similarities, new traditions they find, and their experiences as migrants in general.
To date, hundreds of YouTubers have told their stories of how they arrived in their host country, using clever videos. These clips show migrant YouTubers best side, the best of their culture and the ties they create with people who welcome them with open arms. These videos provide inspiration in the fight against xenophobia and discrimination.
