ESCAPE STORIES

25 years old

Dec 2nd, 2017

When I was a middle school student, my brother and father passed away, and my mother was very worn out. My mother's job was a doctor, but life was still hard.

My mother always hated North Korea, and one day she brought me to China unwittingly. She did so to make sure that I was the only one to live, if she got caught.

In China, I lived where my mother told me to live. My mother's relatives made me an ID card so I could work in coffee shops and clothing stores in the city and make a little money.

I became aware of and yearned about Korea while in China. My mother always tried to make my dream come true, and she thought it would be best for me to go to Korea and so helped me leave through a teacher.

I really want to go to Korea to study and become a doctor to fulfill my mother's wishes. Thank you very much for your help.
