I was born on the Carteret Islands, a group of six atolls just off the northeast coast of Bougainville Island in Papua New Guinea. They are home to over 2,700 people.
Women are the traditional custodians of the land here. My grandmother passed our small island to my mother and she passed it on to me. But I will never be able to pass it to my daughter. Her heritage will be gone by then.
I don't know much about science. What I know is that our shores are being eaten away. And nothing can stop the erosion.
The hardest thing I have ever had to do was tell my family and friends that we needed to leave our homes.
We are climate refugees. And we are fighting for our lives.
Our best option is now 71 hectares of land on Bougainville Island that have been generously allocated to us. One hectare of land has been given to the seven families who have already relocated.
