Prepare yourselves to hear the story of Yeonmi Park because it’s heavy.
When she was a teenager, Yeonmi escaped from North Korea to China. What she experienced was horrible — being sold as a sex slave by border officials, walking across Mongolia in the middle of winter and nearly dying of starvation.
But Yeonmi made it out alive, and now she lives happily in Chicago. She is outspoken about the terrible regime in North Korea and she voices her thoughts on her YouTube Channel, and through various best selling books. I invite you to share your opinions about Yeonmi’s story and about North Korea in general in the comments below.
Hope you had a very Merry Christmas and remember that freedom is not always free.
I’ll see you in the next year when I’m kicking off my Saudi Arabia videos!!!
