Hello everybody! My name is Joel and I’m 24 years old. I’m from America. I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. I also lived in Puerto Rico. So I speak a little Spanish. I came to Japan last year in June to study japanese. I’ve been a lover of anime and manga for most of my life. My favorite manga is One Piece. I also love boxing. I used to box myself. And I plan on continuing boxing as a hobby in Japan. My favorite boxer is Miguel Cotto. I am also really interested in philosophy. Having deep conversations about philosophy is one of favorite topics. After school I’d like to be an English teacher in Osaka. So I’m really looking forward to this experience. Can’t wait to meet you.
