"My name is Alex, I am 23 years old. I've practiced boxing for 10 years and I have coached for 5 years from amateur competition level to novice level with ages ranging from 10-30. Whilst on this project I would like to develop my French and meet people. As for my role as a volunteer coach, it is my mission to help children learn basic English through the sport of boxing. I would like to think that I'm a democratic coach who allows the students to decide and express themselves"
