Miami as Text is Miami as seen by students of the Honors College of Florida International University. The project provides authentic reflection with a juxtaposotion of image and text. Neighborhood by neighborhood, place by place, object by object, young people people respond by praise and criticism to The Magic City.

Miami as Text was founded by John William Bailly and German Etcheverry. The team also includes Teaching Assistants Stephanie Sepulveda and Rachel Young, lead intern Gina Martins, as well as interns Paola Bustos, Narmeen Hanif, and Jonah Wichterich.
