She was starving , had no freedom and feared for her life every second. Yeonmi Park faced the world and told the story of struggle she and her family faced in North Korea.
Recently a two year old video surfaced , that is breaking the internet – Of a young North Korean girl who told the world how she was violated and tortured, before she finally found the courage to escape that hell .
She was 13 years of age when Park and her mother was sold off for a petty amount ,she was raped and tortured . Yeomni decided she had to do something or she would die under this dictatorship . So tender in age , she took it upon herself to find a way out of the suffocating underprivileged lives they were living ; she set off to walk the Mongolian desert all alone to fend for herself.
A child who should have been kept in a safe atmosphere- was running scared fearing that she could be shot to death any second. But she made it , with a question for humanity , she never looked back , becoming a Human Rights Activist. She goes on to write a book called ‘In Order To Live’ , wherein she talks of the horrid days she faced as a child when she was abducted .
She now speaks for the people still trapped in the remote areas of North Korea , who see no light and feel no comfort, she fights for them all.
