Storyboard Text

  • We were miserable. Everything about the camp was WRONG.
  • This place was meant to be safe for people like us, a place without danger where we could rest while our claims to asylum were processed.
  • The security guards meant to protect us treated us like dirt. My sister and I , as well as other people, were abused by them multiple times.
  • Instead, it was a place of violence, anger, and sadness, worse than at home.
  • That was barely half of it. There was also inadequate healthcare, inadequate education, and a lot of suicide. Others were understandably depressed, and some children had to watch security guards rape their mothers. This supposed safe haven was a living hell.
  • Me and my sister were stuck in that horrid place for years.
  • ...and years.
  • ...and years.
  • But then...
  • We had been both been granted 5 year safe haven Visas. We would live in Australia.
  • Best of all, we could leave Nauru, hopefully forever.
  • We were already imagining what life in Australia would be like.
  • Of course, I'd always remember and hate what happened to me at Nauru...
  • ...but I would be safe in Australia. Safe to move on, safe to think of my future, safe to do anything I want, and I am eternally grateful for that.
