Please, no, I hope the volunteers won’t try to take my photo, I really don’t want it. I have a couple of reasons for wanting to maintain my privacy. I worked at a casino when I was in North Korea, so I was connected with some high-level government officials and I know about their corruption. They think I am dead because my family reported that I was missing. Second, I still have family in North Korea, I don’t want it to be revealed that they lied in reporting that I had died. Third, I am involved in some church activities here, I have so much stress because they want to take photos of the North Korean refugees and highlight us in their videos and brochures. Some of the members want to take selfies with us and post them online. I must ask them to mosaic my face in photos, otherwise they want to post my photo and mention that I am from North Korea. I really hope to have a low profile as I try to make my new life here.
