Ms. Mary Lai Salvana, 4 BS Applied Mathematical Finance, was awarded as
Grand Prize winner for her speech, ‘Five Senses, Two Countries, One
Friendship’, delivered at the 2nd Philippines-Korea Speech Contest
organized by the Filipino-Korean Cultural Foundation last July 26, 2014 at
the Korean Cultural Center, Taguig.
Established by Mr. Park Hyun Mo, the Filipino-Korean Cultural Foundation,
Inc. has been instrumental in promoting cultural exchanges between
Filipinos and Koreans. Since last year, the foundation, in collaboration
with the Korean Orators Association Philippine Headquarters, has been
sending both Filipino and Korean nationals to the World Speech Contest held
in different parts of the world. Filipino and Korean contestants of the
regional competition compete in separate categories.
Currently an FLC KOR 3 (Korean Language and Culture 3) student and a
recipient of the KF-Sogang Korean Studies grant provided by the Ateneo
Initiative for Korean Studies (AIKS), Ms. Lai Salvana won as this year’s
Philippine representative to the 19th Korean Orators Association World
Speech Contest. Ms. Salvana, who will compete in Sydney, Australia on
August 23, 2014, was coached for the regional round by the Department of
Modern Language’s Visiting Korean Lecturer and will train under the Korean
Orators Association Philippine Headquarters for the world competition.
Congratulations, Lai! 축하합니다!
