Jonel is from Brooklyn, New York. She was living in northern Japan at the time of her interview, and was spending her days “at work…and if I’m not at work, I’m either relaxing at home, studying more Japanese, cooking, or hanging out with my friends.”

Jonel’s Most Likely To Is: "Most Likely to Do Things That Are Random"

We talked about YOLO, doing random things, and how fear nearly stopped her from going to Japan. Jonel explained how she ended up moving to the northern Japanese city of Morioka.

She spoke about Japanese food, J-Pop, and hearing Fetty Wap in local cell phone stores; and she shared some reflections and stories from her experiences being one of only a few Americans in her town.

She discussed her path of personal growth over the past few years, including the hardest part of her post-college transition.
