Summer Sonata of Yaoyao Lou
Yaoyao Lou (BA 2015) received the KCC Company scholarship in 2015. Yaoyao was a media studies major at the Department of Communication and Journalism. She graduated in May 2015 with the Latin Honors summa cum laude.
At Suffolk, she worked on Korea-related projects such as proposing a new media company that produces reality shows for Korean pop icons in Business of Media and a presentation on Korean business etiquette in Presentation Skills.
She spent six weeks in Seoul taking language lessons at Yonsei University in the morning and interning at Chosun TV in the afternoon. Shown above is a video that she made for Suffolk to document her days in Seoul.
Yaoyao got placed in the second level class where the teacher instructs in Korean only. Most students in her class were Korean Americans who would like to know about their heritage. Their class made a video called “Where are our classmates?” (need to refresh the page if you see a blank screen) and won the Talents Prize.
