Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner is a poet and climate activist from the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Her home has seen severe coastal erosion as a result of climate change, along with sea-level rise, storm surges, and droughts. Her community must rely on emergency teams delivery food and water at critical times. Kathy still has hope for her islands and continues her work as an activist with the desire that the situation will improve. Photo credit: Inez and Vinoodh
