The memoir, ‘In Order To Live: A Young Girl’s Journey To Freedom’ explains the hardships and extended length of time Park spent traveling across Asia under constant threat from people smugglers. Yeonmi Park and her family seemed to be part of the elite of North Korea, which gave the family a sense of protection from the issues facing many in the communist country. Park reveals the starvation even her family with a father working as a government official faced, which forced her father to sell goods on the black market; a decision that led to Park’s father being imprisoned and the family left destitute. The majority of the book deals with the story of the escape of Yeonmi Park and her family from North Korea, with some unheard details included in the book.  Following the completion of their epic journey a glimpse into the life Yeonmi Park now lives shows just how important the assistance refugees receive is to those around the world who are in need. Yeonmi Park shot to global attention following her speech at the One Young World summit in 2014 and has since continued to seek out the best options for assisting others who wish to escape North Korea.
