TNKR Speech Contest Orientation

January 20 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On February 24, 2018, TNKR will be holding its 7th English speech contest. We anticipate having seven North Korean refugees compete in the contest, meaning that we will need at least 14 speech coaches to help them get prepared. We will be holding an orientation session on January 20 from 2 pm at the TNKR office with prospective coaches. We hope to then quickly share resumes with refugees, then hope you will get started ASAP.

Minimum two sessions to help them prepare their speeches and to practice to get ready for that moment on stage! Previous winners include:

* Sungju Lee, author of Every Falling Star
* Eunsun Kim, author of A Thousand Miles from Freedom
* Cherie Yang, TV personality and TEDxTalk speaker
* Sehyek Oh, NK refugee activist
