Southville Alumna Wins Distinguished Paper Award in South Korea

Among over 120 papers from USA, Germany, Poland, China, South Korea and India, the research paper of Ainrand Jacinto Uy, alumna of Southville International School and Colleges - College of Psychology won the Distinguished Paper Award at the 2017 International Symposium on Education and Psychology last September 5-7, 2017 at Seoul, South Korea.

“Being awarded as Distinguished Paper Award is such an honor and a blessing at the same time. I am still in awe, and I can't believe that I am at this point in my life. I think I do deserve the award, because the beauty of my research is that it deals with improving the overall holistic health condition of obese individuals. Also, Philippines has a high obesity rate that's why my research is still a relevant issue up to this day,” said Miss Uy in an interview.

Miss Uy’s paper entitled Body Image and Eating Behavior Patterns in Relation to Social Functioning of Obese Enrollees in Selected Fitness Centers examines the cultural and lifestyle behaviors of obese Filipino individuals. The paper analyzed how Filipino Psychology is underrated that people don't usually talk about nor notice that their lifestyle puts them in the Obese category.

Other notable presenters from Southville are Dr. Joanne Rieta Miranda and Fatima Alessandra Bilbao Carlotta for The Use of Appreciative Inquiry Art Reading Material to Aid in the Reading Skills of Students with Dyslexia; Angelica Rose Tan for A Case Study on the Effects of Lip Reading as a Technique in Improving the Communication Skills of Students with Hearing Impairment; Yzelle Xaira De La Rea for An Exploratory Study on the Social Skills of the Abandoned and Neglected Children of Elsie Gaches Village (Philippines) With or Without Recreational Activities; and Joanne Rieta Miranda, Virginia Ortencio Caneo, Marjorie Gutierrez Tangog, Marie Ann Costales Mirando for Enhancing the Conceptual Understanding of Special Education Major Students through Flipped Classroom.

The conference presents opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration.
