Sungju Lee Author Visit

Year 8 and Year 9 students enjoyed an inspiring and moving talk by the young North Korean defector Sungju Lee. Sungju spoke about his unique memoir ‘Every Falling Star’, the first to portray contemporary North Korea to a young audience. He gave a fascinating insight into how harsh life in North Korea is, one of the most isolated countries on earth. Students responded with a wide range of interesting and thought provoking questions. Sungju Lee is now 29 and a Chevening Scholar studying for a master’s degree in International Relations at Warwick University. He recently gave a talk at the Houses of Parliament to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on North Korea.
