Yesterday was my Korean son in law’s graduation from graduate school. He got a masters in International Studies from Hangook University of Foreign Studies. The name of his masters is really hard to translate because we don’t have anything like it in America. He kept calling it “Multi Cultural Education,” but it is not an Education degree in the way we understand and Education degree. He studied very hard, and he doubted himself a lot, but he accomplished it! He is a deep thinker with lots of good ideas, and that is what pushed him over and got his masters. He has a very unusual masters thesis, and no one has written about the kinds of thing she has written before. He explored all the Korean laws dealing with foreigners throughout history and gave recommendations for better laws that would work better that he created. He took it clear back to when Korea didn’t let anyone in the country or out of the country. It is all in very difficult Korean, so I can only say the things I have heard people talk about with his thesis because I only speak a little Korean. When his dad read it, he said his son should work for the United Nations because he was so impressed. Yesterday, was the day celebrating his accomplishment.
I wanted to go, but had prior commitments, but my daughter took pictures to show you. One of the funny things she showed me was that there were special seats reserved for pregnant women. They put a type of stuffed animal in the seats and put signs on the seats.
My daughter got pictures of her husband throwing his hat in the air after graduation.
Here are a couple of graduation gifts my son in law received. People understand that he is a thinker.
Now, my Korean son in law has a masters degree. His dad has been talking to him about getting a doctorate. He goes back and forth about saying he will do it, and then he won’t do it. He wants to move to America, and he is afraid if he goes to America, he won’t be able to study in Korean. He is trying hard to figure his future out. He likes the idea of moving to Oklahoma. He likes the culture there, and he is trying to figure out what he will do if he goes to Oklahoma. If anyone has a good job for a bilingual deep thinker, leave a comment and I will connect you to him.
