My Escape From North Korea
By Hyeonseo Lee + TED TALKS
After the North Korean famine of the 1990s almost starved her (and her entire country) to death, Hyeonseo Lee escaped from North Korea at 14 years old. She fled to China, and began a life of hiding. This courageous refugee reminds us of the resilience of the human spirit.
Such a powerful reminder of all the things we might take for granted!
