Like all Royce Carlton Speakers, Yeonmi Park is exclusively represented by Royce Carlton, Inc. for lectures and speaking engagements.
For many throughout the world, freedom is not a right. In the darkest corners of the planet, the things that many take for granted, like watching movies or even having private thoughts, aren’t available to everyone. North Korean defector and author of In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom, Yeonmi Park, knows this all too well.
Now a student at Columbia University and a human rights activist, Yeonmi is experiencing these things for the first time: going to concerts, enjoying a plate a sushi, and watching a basketball game, the things that many don’t even recognize as luxuries. Yeonmi’s story and book, which has been selected by many college reading lists, don’t ignore these little details — they are what she’s fighting for.
Through her story of horror and resilience, Yeonmi takes audiences behind the walls of North Korea and inside the mind of a prisoner of the Kim dynasty. As she showed audiences at the Oslo Freedom Forum and the One Young World Summit, she paints a picture of the real North Korea and presents a vision for what needs to be done to make the world a better place.
