Mabuhay! I am Rhobie Underwood. I’m currently in my second year as a graduate student in English here at WIU. I graduated with a BA in English from West Visayas State University, Philippines. I have worked in different BPO companies in the Philippines, specifically T-Mobile USA and Teleflora Sears Company. I’ve taught performance arts and elementary science and math at Ramkhamhaeng Institute of Languages in Thailand for three years. I have also worked as an Engl ish tutor for Korean, Taiwanese, and Chinese students. I love singing, reading, learning languages, photography and DIY projects. I am interested in gender and postcolonial studies.  I love cooking Filipino, Japanese, Thai, and American foods. My specialty is lumpia or Filipino spring rolls.
