As the CEO and founder of the company, I look at Beeber Global as an unique opportunity for Japanese society to embrace the international culture. Being a host or volunteer in Beeber Global platform is not only a lifetime opportunity, but also a positive step towards a sustainable world through fulfilling SDG 4,8,10 and 16. Thinking about exploring new cultures or, making new friends? Beeber Global family is waiting for you !!!

I founded Beeber Global because I'm passionate about chatting with people from different places, and I want others to share in those amazing experiences. Also, being a travel lover myself, I aim to make travel affordable and language barriers a thing of the past. Let's make connecting with people worldwide and exploring new destinations easy and budget-friendly for everyone!

Life is all about experiences. I have some of my dearest relationships with people and places who were once strangers, I have grown as a person with them. Travelling and living at new places with new people comes with lots of adventures and surprises. I am glad to be working towards making such adventures accessible through our platform. We are focussed on building friendships and relationships across borders. Let's explore and experience!!

What is life? I questioned myself multiple times and had a common answer- Its about creating moments. I am part of the founding team of Beeber Global since it fosters creating memorable moments by bridging the gap between two people who are probably thousands of miles apart. No one does it better than Beeber Global !!!

Luisa Matiz
Language Expert
Doctoral Scholar (MEXT), Graduate School of Life Science, Hokkaido University.
[M.Sc. (Biology)]

Learning languages is part of my hobbies. I think going deep into learning a language could change a life. Because you will be able to understand others by the way they express themselves. If superpowers were real, they must be like knowing languages. I decided to join Beeber Global to share the magic of learning languages and explore cultures through a customized experience. Let's embrace the process together and build on it!
