ESCAPING NORTH KOREA (to America)

By Drew Binsky | DrewBinsky Travel | 2 Sep 2020


Today in Chicago, I had the pleasure to meet a young North Korean girl named Evelyn. 6 years ago, when she was 15 years old, she escaped North Korea with her mother for a better life.

Both without passports, they spent 1 month traveling by foot across China, Laos and Thailand - where the South Korean government officially recognized her as a refugee and she was granted permission to migrate to the United States of America. In this eye-opening interview, Evelyn tells me her escape story and how she has managed to integrate so well into American society.

She lives all by herself and just bought her first car (with her hard-earned income!).
