I am 000, and I first arrived here in the States two years ago. At first, I struggled very much because of the language barrier. A few months after arriving in the States, I was able to learn English at Empower House run by ENoK, and what I learned while I was there has proven tremendously helpful since I started working outside.
The reason I am writing this message is to let you know that I recently got married! It was not the easiest process getting married so soon after only a few months of dating. I had no idea how to prepare for a proper wedding. However, on the wedding day, so many people came to help decorate the venue and celebrate the occasion with me. Especially, many staff members, volunteers, and other North Korean refugee students from ENoK came to congratulate me and my husband. It still puts a smile on my face thinking about the wedding day. I would like to sincerely thank all the people at ENoK for taking precious time out of their busy schedule. I will continue to feel grateful and joyful! Thank you!
