Details About the talk

Cuando era niña en Corea del Norte, Hyeonseo Lee pensaba que su país era "el mejor del planeta." No fue hasta la hambruna de los años 90 que comenzó a cuestionarse. Escapó del país cuando tenía14 años para comenzar una vida en la clandestinidad, como refugiada en China. La suya es una desgarradora historia personal de supervivencia y esperanza y un poderoso recordatorio de aquellos que enfrentan peligro constante, incluso cuando la frontera se queda atrás.

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.
