Thank you Chipotle Mexican Grill for sponsoring food that helps to feed our clients daily here at HFA. We appreciate your generosity.
Steve Ells, founder, chairman and co-CEO, started Chipotle with the idea that food served fast did not have to be a typical fast food experience. Today, Chipotle continues to offer a focused menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls (a burrito without the tor…tilla) and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in a distinctive atmosphere. Through our vision of Food with Integrity, Chipotle is seeking better food not only from using fresh ingredients, but ingredients that are sustainably grown and naturally raised with respect for the animals, the land, and the farmers who produce the food. Chipotle opened its first restaurant in 1993 and currently operates more than 1000 restaurants. For more information, visit chipotle.com.
Starbucks has an unusually human approach to business. We always figured that putting people before products just made good common sense. Our relationships with farmers yield the highest quality coffees. The connections we make in communities create a loyal following. Our ability to accomplish what we set out to do is based primarily on the people we hire - we call each other “partners.” We are always focused on our people.
Thank you for your support! HanulUSA’s page become an official fan page. The address is now www.facebook.com/HanulChicago.

Wonjung Bae, Speaker for the Career Exploration Workshop: Art and Music!
Wonjung Bae is a filmmaker interested in the issues of identity, modernity, and art. Born in Busan, South Korea, Bae made her first documentary, Grand, Father and Me, at age sixteen and came to believe in the power of visual storytelling.
Bae has won numerous awards including the 38th Student Academy Award for Documentary Category, the 16th Annual Directors Guild of America Student Film Award for Women Category, the Kodak Cinematographers Scholarship 2010 Bronze Award, Viva Doc International Student Documentary Competition Best of Category Award for Arts and Humanities, the Chris Award from 58th Columbus International Film & Video Festival, Ohio, the Best of Fest Award from DOCUTAH International Documentary Film Festival, Utah, the Korean Broadcast Institute Student Film & Video Competition Best Documentary Award, and the YMCA Cultural Ministry Awards for Student Filmmakers, Korea, among others.
As the cinematographer for most of her films, Bae shoots on both digital and film. Bae benefits from her background in 35mm still photography and dark room training for 5 years in apprenticeship under a respected Korean documentary photographer, Youngsu Kim. Bae majored in political science for her bachelor’s degree in Korea University, Seoul, and is a MFA candidate at Columbia College Chicago Film & Video department, Chicago. Before her graduate studies, Bae worked as a video-journalist and photography editor for World Press Photo awardwinning photojournalist, Sungsu Cho in Seoul, Korea.
Bae relishes uneasy and humane characters and their evasive attempt to communicate. Bae’s recent projects include: Blunt Edge, a HD biography of a Jewish painter and her 80th birthday; Museum of Exile, an animated documentary about teenage Assyrian refugees from Iraq living in Chicago; and, a 16mm film about the Krenovian furniture making process and its exquisite artisanship. Bae believes the art of documentary and fiction are equal avenues in achieving a similitude of the real. Bae seeks to capture the pertinent formal and aesthetic properties of the medium that are indispensable to realize each story. The result of her cinematic endeavors is the deliberate, raw human stories she shares with her audience.
