On New Year’s Day 2003 Mike Kim gave up a financial planning business in Chicago and left for China on a one-way ticket with two duffle bags. He had learned hundreds of thousands of North Koreans were fleeing to China in search of food and freedom. Mike successfully led many North Korean escapees to safety in Southeast Asia using a 6,000-mile modern-day underground railroad. He wrote Escaping North Korea about his experiences and founded Crossing Borders, a nonprofit dedicated to providing humanitarian assistance to North Korean refugees.
