These types of agencies are often called investment banking firms.But for George Soros, who works with a family mentality, the agency he was to develop is a management firm. This fund enables others around the world to join a group of people who have all benefited from putting their trust into the work of George Soros. And that work is a duplication of the work George was able to first accomplish for himself.Yet, though this presents an enormous platform and access to wealth, George Soros is currently retired from the family business.

The Story of a Determined Defector

Growing up in one of the most repressive countries across the globe was a nightmare to Yeomni Park. In her Amazon released book of In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom, Park notes that she was not aware of what freedom entailed and didn’t even understand the concept. Freedom being an impossible dream, all she cared about was having food.

Park’s journey to freedom starts with her first steps away from North Korea back on March 31, 2007. Yeonmi Park recounts how she and her mother crossed Yalu River deep in the night and arrived in China with no idea on the next course of action. Merely thirteen years old, Park had to endure a lot in her escape journey. They had to cross the harsh Gobi desert, to the insecure Mongolian border, and eventually land in South Korea by Plane.
Park’s perseverance and determination to survive propelled her to endure the pains and struggle throughout the journey. Her journey was characterized by constant abuse, risk of suicide, and starvation. According to Park, her father died without tasting freedom or knowing whether democracy exists anywhere in the world.
Although her story has captured interests of thousands of readers across the globe, some of them have attempted to discredit the major parts of her story. Others claim that there are discrepancies in her survival story. Amid all the criticism, Park holds strongly that her story is true. She says that some details were changed a bit for the security of her family members still residing in North Korea.
