Hyeon-Seo Lee, speaker at Ted 2013!

Update: Hyeon-seo's speech at TED has been posted. Watch, share, link, comment.

Congratulations to HyeonSeo Lee, a wonderful young lady who was born in North Korea, now lives in South Korea, and will soon be speaking at TED's annual gathering from February 25-March 1. She is the first North Korean refugee to speak at Ted.

I was the co-chair of the campaign to raise awareness about her last summer. Thanks to my co-chair Jane Bojung Park for her inspiration and energy. David Choo and many other fantastic folks were also a part of our team.
