I have a good amount of international modeling experience in Tokyo, and even more amazing creative projects in Vancouver. I'm always looking to outdo previous projects and improve my portfolio.

Why do you want to be a model?:
It's taken me a long time to appreciate and love myself. For the longest time I believed the bullies, cyber bullying, group attacks, all telling me I was ugly, short, crybaby, annoying. The list is endless. I thought self esteem was a myth. It's only been the past 4years I've learned to love myself and my flaws and finally accept compliments without complaint or protest.
A big part of me wants to do this for my past self, for the girl who used to hate the way she looked so she let others walk all over her, and for every bully that ever dragged her down. But I also want others to find self-esteem like I have, and chase their dreams and never give up when things are hard. And what better way to do that than to set an example?
Also, it truly makes me happy when I can be on set or in studio, working with other amazing creative talents"
Skills and Interests
My spare time goes into modeling, karaoke (online and bar), making youtube videos, mixing music, writing novels, reading, watching Asian dramas, translating Japanese video clips, and recently I have found myself back into acting, after several years of personal hiatus.
I am conversationally fluent in Japanese, after 10 years of absorbing the language in odd ways (j-dramas). I am completely self-taught thus far. I have visited Japan twice and lived there by myself for over a year(immersion is the best way to learn a foreign language). I still remember the overwhelming nostalgia that hit me during my very first trip to Japan in 2008. I felt peace, yearning and a familiar comfort, like a recognition of an old friend. I found a piece of myself I hadn't realized I was missing. I will make my way back to the source of those feelings.
