Janine Laddaran, 19, 4 BS MIS-MSCS student, won 3rd Place in the 2016
Korean Speech Contest Grand Finals held last April 30. In her speech,

Philippine International College, and Angeli Mari Baclean, a Korean
Language Instructor from Tacloban, respectively. Both were also finalists
in last year's competition. The 3 other Ateneans who made it to the finals
were Jan Caitlin Jao (IV AB COMM), Samantha Logarta (IV AB CHINESE
STUDIES/DIPIR) and Franchesca Magnayon (IV BS COMTECH). A total of 11
contestants from all over the Philippines competed.


Held in the Ateneo, the event was attended by more than 150 participants
from different institutions, who were welcomed by the Dean of the School of
Social Sciences, Dr. Fernando Aldaba, and the Director of the Korean
Cultural Center, Counsellor Oh Choong-Suk. Also in attendance were
officials from the Korean Embassy, Korean International School, and Korea
Tourism Organization.
