Guest Speaker – Dr. Sun-A-Lee

Filed under: International PR — swilso37 @ 5:58 pm

Dr. Sun-A-Lee gave a lecture to my international public relations class on Thursday, September 24. The topic of her discussion was culture on global scale. Dr. Sun-A-Lee’s speech was extrememly interesting. She showed shocking statistics about different cultures. She also dispalyed some global demographics.

Dr. Sun-A-Lee is from from South Korea and moved to America in her early twenties. She taught us about some typical stereotypes that people from American may have about her because of the fact she is from South Korea. She told us that a stereotype does not have to be bad or negative, because a stereotypes are about viewing and assuming characteristics of a society as a whole (i.e. everyone has that same characteristic in that society) rather than judging that person on their individual characteristcs. Not everyone within a culture displays the same characteristics. I found many of her points very interesting. Dr. Sun-A-Lee’s discussion was a great success in our class and will be recalled for many future topics in the class.
