(Video) Isabella Borgeson | Yolanda Winds

Additional Info

For the Spoken Word for the World Competition:

On November 8, 2013, super typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) hit my mother’s hometown of Tanauan, Leyte in the Philippines.

This piece, titled “Yolanda Winds” is dedicated to my mother, a survivor of the super typhoon, who struggles to forgive the sea. A reminder that we are a people of the sea. And for some of our families, sharing our stories about climate change, typhoon seasons, and rising oceans – is an act of resistance, necessary for our survival.
