Jun Bongolan is a Canadian-born, yonsei (fourth-generation) Japanese Filipino. Born and raised in Toronto, he is a member of the Young Japanese Canadians of Toronto (YJCT), an organization focused on community-building among Nikkei youth.

He seeks to learn and contribute to the development of Nikkei identity, as well as foster mutual understanding and friendships with other Nikkei diasporas across the world. He is currently interested in the study of war-displaced, second-generation (nisei) Japanese Filipinos, as well as the current practice of return-migration by their descendants.
