Details About the talk

Sebagai anak yang tumbuh besar di Korea Utara, Hyeonseo Lee berpikir bahwa negaranya adalah "yang terbaik di dunia." Ia mulai mempertanyakan kepercayaan tersebut ketika Korea Utara dilanda bencana kelaparan di tahun 1990-an. Dia melarikan diri pada usia 14 tahun dan memulai kehidupan dalam persembunyian sebagai pengungsi di Cina. Kisahnya mengisahkan perjuangan dan harapan yang menyayat hati — dan sebuah momento yang sangat kuat bagi siapa pun yang senantiasa menghadapi bahaya, meski sudah jauh dari perbatasan.

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.
