This heartbreaking video letter is from Mohammed Zubair who has been living in Kutupalong Rohingya Refugee Camp for 30 of his 31 years. He recounts his life story, his family's journey from Myanmar after his father was killed by the military in 1994, and his family's struggles. This includes his own struggle to become a teacher but only for refugee children in the camp. He is a Human Rights activist and discusses restrictions of rights by Bangladesh authorities and the appalling conditions in camps. The film was co-produced by assembling WhatsApp voice messages and photos sent by Mohammed to Marie Gillespie.
