I started my last semester in Yonsei University’s Korean Language Institute 

June 10, 2017


Yesterday was the beginning of the end of my stay in Korea as a Korea Foundation Korean Language Training Fellowship recipient.   I started learning Korean language level 2 last September 2016 during the fall semester.  From there,  I progressed to level 3 in winter,  level 4 in spring 2017,  and now level 5 in […]

Sri Lanka’s traditional dance and my K-pop influenced lens 

May 20, 2017


Thanks to Korea Foundation,  I was able to watch Sri Lanka: A Treasure Island of Dance and Music (스리란가, 춤과 음악의 보물섬)  by one of the country’s best choreographers and percussionists Ravibandhu Vidyapathy.   It felt refreshing to see and hear something other than Korean music, as I have been living and studying in Korea […]

Multicultural Family’s Election Experience ​(다문화가족 선거이야기)

April 12, 2017


For research purposes,  I went to the Seoul Global Cultural Center’s hour-long talk on the Multicultural Family’s Election Experience (다문화가족 선거이야기).

Korean Studies Geek

December 18, 2012


May 2012 saw me shocked and super pleased upon getting this good news: A two-year scholarship grant from ASEAN University Network to study M.A. Korean Studies, a joint international program of Chulalongkorn University in Thailand and Seoul National University in Korea. This month also saw me frantically tying a lot of loose ends at work and school, packing my […]

Michelle Camille Correa, M.A.

March 4, 2012


Michelle Camille Correa, M.A. Not that I'll be flaunting my academic credentials by signing my name like that from now on. It's just too strange, since I'm not even a professor of any sort. I'm just a communication practitioner who wanted to improve her craft through further studies. At any rate, I'm writing this blog post just to share that yeah, I'm finally graduating with a degree in MA Communication this year.
