Details About the talk

Odrastajući u Sjevernoj Koreji, Hyeonseo Lee je mislila da je njena zemlja "najbolja na planeti". Počela se pitati tek kad je zemlju zahvatila glad u devedesetim. Pobjegla je iz zemlje u dobi od 14 kada je započela život skrivanja kao izbjeglica u Kini. Ovo je mučna, lična priča o preživljavanju i nadi - te moćan podsjetnik na one koji se neprestano nalaze u opasnosti, čak i kada uspiju prijeći granicu.

About the speaker
Hyeonseo Lee · Activist

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thoght her country was the "best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 17-years-old to begin a life in hiding as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope — and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind.
