President

Hello! My name is Alan, I'm a fourth year CS major, and the club's president! I've been studying Japanese for almost two years now, mostly through watching anime and reading books and VN's. I started learning it because I like anime and thought it would be cool to just understand it one day. Some of my favorites are Bloom into You, Bocchi the Rock, and Oddtaxi. My hobbies outside of Japanese include coffee and programming. Feel free to reach out if you wanna chat about something!

Scheduler

Hello everynyan. I am Brandon, a first year CS major and the club's Scheduler! I started learning Japanese towards the end of summer in 2023 because of Japanese music. Since then, I've been "very consistently" studying Japanese...haha. Some artists that I like are Kessoku Band, AKFG, Minami, TUYU, Hoshimachi Suisei, sakanaction, and Galileo Galilei! I also LOVEE Bocchi the Rock!!! At JLL, I hope to help provide a fun space for people to learn Japanese and share their passion for the language with others! ٩(^ᗜ^ )و

Treasurer

Hi! I'm Gerard, and I am a fourth year Electrical Engineering major and the club's treasurer. I've been studying Japanese since high school and I started mainly due to Japanese music and wanting to actually understand it (as well as sing along www). I like Jpop, Vocaloid, and utaites (Mafumafu !!!!!). I also like Vtubers for the same reason (Suisei !!). I am always down for some karaoke too! Other than music, I also like Japanese food, playing games, and technology!
