Details About the talk

Quando criança, crescendo na Coréia do Norte, Hyeonseo Lee acreditava que seu país era "o melhor do planeta." Foi apenas após a período de fome da década de 90 que ela começou a se questionar. Ela fugiu do país aos quatorze anos, passando a viver em clandestinidade, como refugiada na China. É uma angustiante e particular história de sobrevivência e esperança — e um poderoso lembrete a respeito daqueles que enfrentam perigo constante, mesmo após terem chegado além da fronteira.

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.
