My name is Juksmori and I come from an Island nation that is north of Australia, called Papua New Guinea. My home village is on an even smaller island which is north of the country in the Bismark Sea. I am married and I have four teenage children, three boys and a girl. I try to instill good values in them and educate them as much as possible on issues such Gender Equality, Violence against women, Peace, and the environment. They also teach me somethings which I'm not aware of from a teenagers point of view.
My country is one of the most culturally diverse country with 848 languages. The country's geography is also very diverse and, in some places, extremely rugged. Therefore, we have alot of issues affecting women, young women and girls and the youth. Health problems, gender inequality, high mortality rates, high unemployment rates, sorcery related killings, sea level rising, etc. At the moment, I'm more focussed on educating young women and girls to become leaders of tomorrow and also educate people on human impacts on the environment, as my island is sinking.
I'm organizing "A GREEN WALK", an awareness on the impacts of humans on the environment, in the city I'm living in. The awareness will be carried out by bicycle riders around the suburbs of the city. They'll be speaking to people and distributing pamphlets written in our common spoke language, which is pidgin.
