Yes, I was back in a recording studio. Isn’t there anyone who can stop this madness?

TNKR Special Ambassador and I had a great conversation. I am used to giving my opinions, so interviewing is both easy (listen, then ask) and difficult (I have a lot to say, but must make sure others have a chance to talk). Read more

A fan dropped by to donate some books to TNKR. He refused to take photos, but he can see here that one of the refugees joining TNKR is very happy to have gotten a book in English! Yes, you can also donate books to TNKR, although we have limited space.

Teach North Korean Refugees Global Education Center is

  • starting a new video project. Contact me if you have video editing skills, camera, podcasts or other skills that could help with launching a video project.
  • starting a discussion group project. TNKR tutors, contact me if you would like to lead discussion groups with refugee learners.
  • accepting requests for NK refugees to speak to their organizations, groups, schools. Contact me if you would like to invite us.
  • launching a new website for a new project. Contact me if you would like to use your website making skills.

As usual, we are launching with no budget, without months of planning. Just do it! I have worked at companies and organizations, I often wondered why it took so long to get things done. I now realize, there were two main things: 1) money. 2) someone to be accountable if the project failed.

This team is off to a great start! Different personalities and style.
