Yevin, Eslam, and Bridget have come to HQ from drastically different places and banded together in support of the North Korean people. In less than a month, they will be packing into a van and traveling for six weeks, sharing stories of the people and giving communities across California the tools they need to become a part of this movement. We hope you get a chance to meet them on our People Can Tour, but in the mean time take a moment to read why they were inspired to get involved:
Yevin is from foggy San Francisco. She wanted to become a nomad after writing her senior thesis on how North Korean defector stories impact U.S.-North Korean relations and stumbled upon LiNK through her research. She loves to play and watch League of Legends in her free time. Her favorite desserts are cheesecake and crème brûlée.
Eslam was born in Cairo, Egypt. Following graduation from Cairo University’s school of law in 2011, he traveled to Germany to study international human rights and humanitarian law. Eslam is a people person and travel addict, which is why he applied to be a Nomad. When it comes to superpowers, Eslam would love to be able to fly.
Bridget comes from the land of gooey butter cake and toasted ravioli—St. Louis, MO. She met a group of Nomads in 2010, and was inspired to step into their shoes to help the North Korean people. That summer she embarked on her first tour with LiNK as a part of the Southeast team. Now, she has returned five years later for a second tour, this time as a CalWest Nomad. Bridget has a serious obsession with musical theater. If she could have just one superpower it would be teleportation, so she could be in New York for any Broadway performance she pleased.
