2020-06-27, Track 2 Orientation (session 2)

June 27 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

On August 30, from 2-5 PM, the Teach North Korean Refugees Global Education Center (TNKR) will be holding its 11th English Speech contest.

North Korean refugees will be giving original speeches in English. To get prepared, participants work with speech coaches to help them sharpen their speeches.

This is a super special opportunity, as volunteers work directly with North Korean refugees getting prepared to speak in the contest.

We give first preference to TNKR Members (it is easy to join!), but all invited to apply.

Some previous winners of the contest include:

Sungju Lee, author of “Every Falling Star: The True Story of How I Survived and Escaped North Korea.”

Eunsun Kim, author of “A Thousand Miles to Freedom: My Escape from North Korea.”

Cherie Yang, TV personality and TEDx speaker.

Eunhee Park, TV personality and TEDx speaker.

Check the Track 2 application page for more details and latest updates.

All are invited to join, but to be counted as “present,” you must apply in advance www.lovetnkr.org/coaching. Observers are allowed, but it can be a bit boring for you because we will have some specific tasks for applicants and I must direct all of my attention to them to make sure they understand our process.
