2020’s Decade Representative
Corinne Chun grew up across the Pacific Ocean on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. Her love for dance and passion to perform started at the age of 3 when her parents signed her up for hula lessons at her local halau (dance studio). Over the years, dancing hula became her way of connecting to her Native Hawaiian culture and history. She was able to showcase two unique hula dances during Eagles tryouts her 5th and 6th season on the squad.
Corinne cheered 4 years in high school, competing in and winning 2 UCA National Championship titles. She then went on to cheer for a year in college at OSU. Corinne graduated Summa cum laude from Oregon State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education, a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development and Family Sciences, and a Minor in Sociology. She then moved back home to Hawaii to become an Elementary School Special Education teacher. She taught for 5 years on the west side of the island, before relocating in 2017 when she made the Eagles Cheer team. Corinne cheered on the Birds to a Super Bowl victory that season in Minnesota. She then went on to cheer for 5 more seasons before retiring in 2023 as one of the captains.
During her time in PA, she went back to school to earn her Master’s degree in Special Education from Widener University. She is currently back in graduate school again working on her graduate certificate in Psychology to become a BCBA. During her time on the squad, Corinne was blessed with the opportunity to participate in two military tours with Pro Tour Productions and Armed Forces Entertainment, traveling to her home state of Hawaii and to Japan. Corinne has participated in every Eagles Autism Challenge since its inaugural year, which is something really special to her because it has allowed her to extend her reach in the Autism community beyond the classrooms and homes that she serves in on a daily basis.
She is looking forward to exploring more of the east coast this year and meeting all of the wonderful alumni who paved the way before her.
