Min Sung Escaped North Korea, Now He’s Pursuing His Dreams  4 min

Min Sung escaped North Korea in search of food, which was scarce in his hometown. After resettling, Min Sung began working in factories to become financially independent and adjust to South Korean society. He later joined LiNK’s Study Abroad & Career Development Program, where he improved his English skills and gained confidence in his interpersonal abilities. Now, he is studying mechanical engineering at a university in Seoul, and recently took third place in a robot-building competition hosted by the university’s engineering department. This fall, Min Sung will be participating in an intensive three-month program at Coding Dojo in San Francisco.
