RE­AL­ITY CHECK

Elle (Canada) - - Letters -

Oh, ELLE Canada, you’ve sur­prised me once again! In your April is­sue—among all the fash­ion-world glam— there was a heartwrench­ing story of courage and per­se­ver­ance: “Es­cape From North Korea” [ELLE World]. I had the priv­i­lege to know a few North Korean es­capees dur­ing my years work­ing in China; I am deeply hum­bled and amazed by their ex­tra­or­di­nary re­silience. You al­ways main­tain a per­fect bal­ance be­tween a brightly lit run­way and a noisy, bustling street— I’m happy to see you’re not afraid to set foot in the darker al­leys. Af­ter all, they are as real as the vast av­enues. IN­ESE, CO­QUIT­LAM, B.C.
