WILFRED REUBEN


My name is Wil Reuben and I am a passionate young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander man born in Townsville, Queensland with my connections to the Murriamu language group in Northern Territory and Darnley Island (Erub) in the Torres Straits. I am currently in my final year of high school with aspirations of becoming a social worker or politician. Seed has given me an opportunity to speak on behalf of my Torres Strait Islander families and friends on the struggles they are facing due to rising sea levels that are caused by the melting of polar ice caps, and also to learn from my other like minded brothers and sisters on the fight for CLIMATE JUSTICE.
