Hyeonseo’s Recent Updates

“I hope you remember that if you encounter an obstacle on the road, don’t think of it as an obstacle at all… think of it as a challenge to find a new path on the road less traveled.”
Hyeonseo Lee, The Girl with Seven Names: A North Korean Defector’s Story

“Leaving North Korea is not like leaving any other country. It is more like leaving another universe. I will never truly be free of its gravity, no matter how far I journey.”
Hyeonseo Lee

“This is when I understood that we can do without almost anything – our home, even our country. But we will never do without other people, and we will never do without family.”
