Very nice. Can you tell whether the handwriting is by someone who learned hiragana/katakana first? I can't.

The translation is indeed very good! I'm not sure that it <em>isn't</em> a native English speaker. Stuff like "Why don't you give it a go while you have the chance?" seems a bit off but could easily be the result of a native speaker trying to translate a bit too literally.

Joel -- The capital W and F seem a bit CCJK-ey to me (avoidance of straight lines, failure to write W as a single squiggle), but my own awful handwriting probably isn't a good basis for judgment.
