SWOT analyses are really effective tools in knowing what your organization can gain and can avoid in its working environment. The analysis that I got was from a paper by Amareswar Galla, which focuses on the general Asian region, but I added my two cents based on my observations in the museum/heritage sector in the Philippines.

In one way or another, my networks in New York State widen faster than anywhere else in the United States (save for Los Angeles). I'm leaning towards taking my postgraduate degree there instead of the United Kingdom, since I know that the New York University (one of the top five universities I want to study in) has a Master of Arts degree in Museum Studies. I actually go to this site almost every day; it's almost like doing my daily prayers.

I've decided to take up a Master's degree in Folklore and Folklife in the University of Pennsylvania after two years of professional work experience, and after graduation and another two years of work in the cultural field, I'll take my second Master's degree in Museum and Heritage Management in the University of Northumbria in the United Kingdom. I really want to be a folklorist and a cultural manager with a specialty in heritage marketing. Heritage in the Philippines needs better marketing. I'm also thinking of getting a PhD in Management and Development of Cultural Heritage in the Institute of Advanced Studies in Lucca, Italy. But that's far off.

The Philippines has endangered languages, but none are, so far, in the list of moribund languages. We have four extinct languages; let's not increase that number.
