IamA kid who lived in the rainforest with no electricity, no running water, you name it we didn't have it. AMA!
Hey guys! I assume some of you have seen my many pictures on pics as well as my askreddit thread. Many people requested an IAMA so why the hell not.
I lived in the rainforest for a good 7 years of my life with my grandmother on an Island called Rendova in the country Solomon Islands. We didn't have any access to running water or electricity. To go to school I had to walk to a neighboring village. We cooked constantly over the fire because we had no oven. My life consisted of playing in the ocean, playing on the land. It was a very fun experience. My dad however, decided I needed to come over to Australia for education. I literally went from a place with no technology to a place with technology everywhere. It was very frightening but at the same time really amazing.
I don't have any pictures of that time (we didn't have cameras) but I do have heaps of photos of when we went back. Go ahead and ask me anything! I will do my best to answer majority of your questions.

Edit: I made this short video out of my sisters recordings when she went in 2009. It may be bad quality but I TRIED! I SAT THROUGH IT UPLOADING FOR YOU GUYS.
Edit 2: Alright guys. I have been redditing for about 8 hours straight and I am tired as anything. I'll try answer whatever questions you have when I wake up. Byeeeeeeeeeeeee for now.
Edit 3: Alright so I woke up and I tried to answer as many questions as possible and I am going to wrap it up here. I hope I have been a good OP too all of you and you enjoyed the AMA. Thanks guys for the interesting questions and you're all pretty funny! Keep up your cheerfulness and remember you are in charge of your happiness so do what makes you happy. Byeeeeeeeeeee.
Edit 4: Also if you have questions that are deeply troubling you and you feel like you can't sleep without them been answered, feel free to PM me. Byeeeeeeeeeeeee again.
Edit 5: I have talked to my mum and have convinced her to do an AMA in the future so be on the lookout for my mothers AMA
