My name is Kristy; 25 years old, internationally experienced model/actress, I freelance both locally in Vancouver and in Tokyo. I am currently pursuing my dream of becoming a foreign talent in Japan, using Vancouver as my home and platform to become a better performer.
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 didn't like how I looked, and I honestly thought I was ugly. It's only been recently that I've learned to love myself and my flaws and finally accept compliments without complaint or protest. Part of me wants to do this for my past self that used to hate the way she looked and let people walk all over her and every bully that ever dragged me 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?
If I can make a career out of feeling good about myself and looking pretty I definitely want to try.
Also it's the most fun I've ever had working, it truly makes me happy when I can be on set or in studio"
I have a good amount of international modeling experience in Tokyo including (but not limited to); eye modeling, voice over work, commercials, music videos and TV shows. I also have local experience with prosthetics, workshops/seminar hair modeling and other runway show work in Vancouver. I'm always looking to outdo previous projects and improve my portfolio. And if I could have a chance to possibly work with other creative and talented individuals from around the world, I would be forever humbled by each experience

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). The land of the rising sun has taught me many things, opened my eyes to those who held me back and showed me all that I have to offer the world and all the great things in my life to be grateful for.
I often say "I am proudly a Canadian with a Japanese soul." Japan was my home before I had even realized. 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. All the dreams that follow me there will unlock. That is my path.
