Hey there! I'm a third-year undergraduate student at Chukyo University, with a major in Global Liberal Studies. Originally from the Philippines, I have a deep passion for understanding diverse cultures and love being part of multicultural environments. It's worth mentioning that Japanese is my fourth language, which I believe is a testament to my commitment to honing my linguistic skills. I'm always eager to participate in community volunteering programs, whether it's back home in the Philippines or here in Japan. I'm a confident go-getter who loves meeting new people and making friends.
