About the Event
In partnership with PSCORE, we regularly host events at local high schools featuring a North Korean defector share their story. Hearing first-hand from a former North Korean citizen helps us look past any stereotypes we may have about North Korea and understand the truth. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to listen to the story of a North Korean defector live.
Belmont High School, Boston Latin School, and Winchester High School

Hanna, a North Korean Defector, spole about her childhood in North Korea, how she escaped, and her life now in South Korea. Huge thank you to Hanna for her courage and vulnerability in sharing her story, and to everyone who made this event possible.

Language Virtual hosted an event at Boston Latin School along with PSCORE, the KCC and the Yee Club featuring a North Korean defector tell her story. She covered her life in North Korea, with the propoganda, public executions, child labor, and youth military service. "Bravery" and "hope for a better future", she said, was what prompted her to make the dangerous journey to the South. We are not allowed to post a picture with the defector due to safety reasons.
