So proud to be a Pacific Islander today, as Marshallese poet and teacher, Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner braves the UN Climate Summit and gave the keynote speech to these UN Leaders. To give the keynote at this event, as a Pacific Islander is so huge and inspiring. For the world to know that Oceania exists and that we are on the frontlines of Climate Change is so important. Thank you for doing this work, thank you for your inspiring speech and poem, thank you for showing the world who Oceania is and that we need to make changes.

Watch Kathy share her speech and poem at the UN Climate Summit and see her cute little Peinam and Mak as they come out to support her towards the end. So wonderful
