Details About the talk

Enquanto criança a crescer na Coreia do Norte, Hyeonseo Lee pensava que o seu país era "o melhor do mundo". Apenas com a fome dos anos 90 é que começou a questionar-se. Ela fugiu do país aos 14 anos, para começar uma vida na clandestinidade, como refugiada na China. A ela pertence uma história angustiante e pessoal de sobrevivência e esperança – e uma poderosa lembrança daqueles que enfrentam o perigo constante, mesmo quando a fronteira já ficou para trás.

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.
