2018-02-24 TNKR English Speech Contest #7: My Little Big Heroes

February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Teach North Korean Refugees will be holding its 7th English speech contest on February 24, 2018 from 2 pm at the Kim and Shin law firm near Myeongdong station (line 4).


7 North Korean refugees have been selected to give speeches in English.

Each speaker will have up to 10 minutes, addressing the theme, “My ‘Little Big’ Heroes.” Refugees applied for the contest by submitting short videos explaining their speeches. They are planning to discuss their ‘little big heroes’ they knew in North Korea, or met while they were escaping through or living in China, or special people they have met as they settled down in South Korea or other countries.

The speeches are moving and promise to open your eyes up to the struggles, experiences and challenges facing North Korean refugees. You will see even small support from people from around the world can encourage them as they make their way in the world outside of North Korea.
