Describe yourself in three words
I would probably say, “Tomboy, Moody and Friendly.
Were you excited to shoot for Playboy?
I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy and surprised to shoot for Playboy, it is truly an honor.
What was it like starting out as a model?
For me, modeling has always been a passion of mine so I started pursuing it very seriously and 2019 is a huge year for me already (shooting for Playboy and many other projects) so I just keep looking towards the future and focusing on building my career.
What would you consider to be your biggest challenge as a model so far?
Being a model can be challenging sometimes (just like any career) especially having photoshoots all the time but for me the rewards are greater because I get to meet people like myself and the challenges help me raise myself mentally. The challenges always help me grow stronger.
Describe your perfect day off when you are not modelling?
Honestly I love my dog so really in my off time I love spending time with her – any place, anytime. Anywhere I can relax with my friends and my dog, I’m happy.
Are you more of a city person or a country person?
I am for sure more of a country girl. I prefer the slow place of the country because city people are too busy. If you rush, you miss the best parts of life.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I think if I could live anywhere in the world it would definitely be Thailand. The food is delicious and the Thai massages are incredible!
A guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure? I speak to my dog in a baby voice.
What is your favourite word in any language and what does it mean?
I speak Japanese so in Japan “Daisuki” which translate to “I love you” or “I need you”.
Any last words you would like to share with the readers?
I’m going to be the most famous model in the world, so look out for me this year! And of course thank you to Playboy and thank you for reading!
Besides being a Playboy model, what big projects are you currently working on?
I’ll be walking the runway for Tokyo Girls Collection (a fashion show with runway held in Japan) as well as the Asia Fashion Awards and also shooting a new campaign for Hanky Panky (a lingerie brand started in New York)
