In another version, in an interview with a San Francisco radio station, Park says, "I escaped with my mum and father – the three of us. This is because Chinese gangsters probably don't have any kind of entourage, and they are in need of 13 year olds to keep the business going. She has marketed her story in a tv series in South Korea (in which she starred) as well as radio, the internet and now print to much success.

Regardless of politics, Park’s story also helped me to see America through the eyes of refugees from other countries.Also, this girl is literally funded by Koch Brothers and Atlas Foundation a libertarian group actively trying to destabilize Venezuela with their propaganda. It's the epitome of inspiration, and I wish every single person would read this book and be inspired by it. Desperation turns to flight, as Yeonmi and her mother are smuggled into China, and to perhaps an even worse fate than starvation as they soon become embroiled in the trafficking and raping of North Korean women to impoverished Chinese farmers. Photograph: Beowulf Sheehan View image in fullscreen Yeonmi Park: ‘Until I started writing, I just shut my mind off. Yeonmi wrote this book with the purpose that more people will listen to her story and know the reality that resides in North Korea even though this means putting her life in danger as she's now being branded as a public enemy to the whole country where she's born.

But after five years of practicing being free, I know now that my favorite color is spring green and my hobby is reading books and watching documentaries. Instead of helping Yeonmi and praising her for what she's doing for her country, people that have no idea about what she went through are lying telling the world that she is a fraud. The author's vivid descriptions of her life under the regime paint a chilling picture of the hardships faced by ordinary citizens.While many take freedom for granted, Park offers an interesting perspective of South Korean freedom, which might provide much sobriety for the reader. Povestea lui Yeonmi ar trebui să vină ca un semnal de alarmă la ce s-ar putea întâmpla dacă o mână de oameni acaparează puterea și se apucă să izoleze un popor întreg de lumea exterioară. This book also reconfirms why we need to treat immigrants and refugees with respect, help and understanding. The utterly alien mindset caused by a very limited mental horizon is perhaps one of the hardest aspects for the Western reader to get his or her head round - for example when asked what her hobbies were: "I had no idea what a “hobby” was.

Doar citind povești ale unor evadați de acolo poți înțelege (și nici atunci pe deplin) cum funcționează această manipulare în masă. In the meantime, the love theme is casually inserted in the story, when a rich, smart, cool and older (I am running out of adjectives) kid falls for the 13 year Park, despite the social class gap. Es ist sehr ergreifend, größtenteils extrem schockierend(vor allem weil ich dachte, dass ich über Nordkorea schon viel weiß) und spannend.Yeomi Park is born into a subsistence-level existence in North Korea which is reduced to almost lower than that when her father, a smuggler of metals, is sent to a labour camp. Yeonmi's journey to freedom is fraught with danger, but her unwavering courage and resourcefulness are truly inspiring. Yeonmi’s place in the North Korean social system as a young girl differed than Masaji, who was a farmer. At times while I'm reading, I forgot that I’m reading a non-fiction book because it was so fucked up, especially what she went through when she’s 13-15 years old.
