Give us some info on how you started dancing?
My mother thought I looked bit bored staying at home when I was 2 or 3 years old so she thought she could take me to dance school so I can meet new friends and have fun dancing with other children. I was very active as a child and always curious about new things so I really enjoyed going to dance school.
Do you use your dancing to get away and relax?
I do kinda get away from everyday life when I am dancing although I will be very focused and serious while I am dancing so I never felt too relaxed. My brain is always very active during dancing.
What kind of dancing are you into?
I love ballet. I love dancing ballet, and love watching ballet. I just think it is so beautiful and the most ballet pieces have storylines and that is another reason why I enjoy it so much. Expressing feelings and stories by using your body is kind of similar to modeling I guess.
How did you start modeling?
This photographer was looking for a dancer to photograph and that was my first photoshoot.
Tell us what are you into besides modeling?
Obviously, dancing is a big part in my life. I would live to work as a dancer more often, not just as a model.
Who is your favorite artist?
My favorite ballet dancer is this Italian dancer called Roberto Bolle. He is a principal dancer at American Ballet Theater and La Scala in Milan. His movements and techniques are so perfect and also he really bright up the stage when he is on the stage.
My favorite model is Gigi Hadid. She looks stunning but also has got natural and relaxed look. Some models look so similar to other models and I almost cannot tell who is who. But she has her own look and she looks different to everybody else. And I think it is important to look different as a model because that makes you special.
What do you do in your free time?
I try to spend time with my friends or boyfriend if I have one. I love spending quality time with people I care. Watching movies used to be my favorite thing to do when i have free time but unfortunately I don’t like movies nowadays compared to good old movies.
What is the biggest city you have been to?
Tokyo is the biggest city I have been and it is my home town. That city is just huge.
What is your most favorite city to visit?
Auckland New Zealand is my favorite city to visit. It is not a big city but I love people, food, and beautiful mountains and beaches there. Very relaxing place to be. I also have many friends there too so it is worth visiting just to see them.
What city do you have on your list to go to before you die?
Paris, London, Milan, New York and California
How do you stay motivated when you feel like giving up?
It is hard to stay positive all the time and I am not one of those people who is always happy and positive so I find it hard to stay that way when Im feeling down. But if there is something I really want in my life, I just don’t give up. Life is meant to be difficult so I just keep going.
Any advice you would give a young model looking to get into the industry?
Be patient and always do your best. Always have a good attitude towards people who you work with. And be careful with who you work with and stay safe.
What turns you on about a man?
Nice attitude and great energy. Warm heart.
In bed what is your favorite position?
I like being on top
What instantly gets you off?
Rudeness, guys with sick manner.
