Yeonmi Park

Yeonmi Park is a human rights activist and North Korean defector. Born in North Korea, Park grew up in a society devoted to the worship of Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il and hatred for enemies of his regime. After watching a pirated copy of the film “Titanic,” the veil of tyranny began to fall. In 2007, Park and her mother escaped to China, where they fell into the hands of human traffickers. Today, Park uses her hard-won freedom to speak out against oppression, raising awareness through speeches, media appearances, and her memoir, “In Order to Live.” Park serves on the Board of the Human Rights Foundation.
