Escaping

Four years ago, Hyeonseo became the first North Korean defector to speak on the TED Global stage. The video has since been watched over 6 million times. She told her story of her escape from North Korea and how she later helped her family escape too. She tells us more about that story and how she and her family are adjusting to life in South Korea.
