Joël (31 years)
Joël is a childhood friend of Raphaël, they were in the same class at primary school and shared many hobbies. One summer afternoon, thanks to Jos, Raphaël’s father, who is already a member of the club, they both get to know the mining train “Minièresbunn”. The trip would turn out to be a revelation to them. Joël, one of whose grandfathers works for the CFL, the other at the steelworks in Belval, seizes the opportunity to pursue his passion. Today, among other things, he makes the guided tours of the mine with competence and joy. Speaking in front of an audience was a challenge for him at first; over time, however, he found he enjoyed it so much that he decided to become a teacher.
