What if two strange men arrived at your school with your mother, and told you and your brother to get into a waiting car?
Leading strategist, TEDx speaker, and mentor, Joon Han, was just a kid when immigration officers showed up and put his whole family on a plane, back to the place where his parents were born, South Korea.
But what would you do if after being deported, your parents arranged for you and your brother to return to the United States and live with strangers, a white family who had answered an ad in the local paper, offering to take you in? Would you run away so you didn’t have to be across the ocean from your mother and father? Or would you fly back to the States with your brother, ready to meet your new family?
