People's Choice Award

1.Tell us why anyone would want come to your hometown?
My hometown is a beautiful beach town called Shonan. People there are very kind and gentle; anyone can feel at home. You can enjoy beautiful scenery, including Mt. Fuji. There are many historical buildings, such as Zen temples and shrines. Fresh seafood and vegetables are also available. Many artists love this place. For example, Mr. Keisuke Kuwata, a famous Japanese musician, was born there and included several places in the lyrics of his songs.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your closet and why?
Two important things in my closet are "to be handsome" and "to be elegant." Since I studied in Switzerland, my theme on fashion has always been "a handsome and elegant woman." Pants-style fashions make me active, and long dresses help my body look more beautiful; both give me a lot of stimuli.

3.What do you love to cook and why?
I love cooking. Food is important as a family communication tool and an energy source for our imagination. I cook various dishes, especially Japanese, Chinese, and Italian. My grandmother lived in China and taught me Japanese and Chinese dishes, which made me interested in them. I have continued to learn Japanese cuisine at a prestigious cooking school, whereas I went to Beijing to learn Chinese dishes. I also went to Florence to learn Italian dishes.

4.If you had an extra hour each day, what would you do?
With my new pageant friends, I want to prepare sandwiches and coffee, go to the beach in the United States, and enjoy riding a horse on the beach!

5.Describe the dirtiest job you have ever had to do?
Nothing special. If I dare to point out the dirtiest job, it would be cleaning horse stalls. However, cleaning horse stalls is an important job for me. By cleaning, I can check the horses' health conditions from their feces. I can also communicate with them. In addition, the feces I get from the cleaning can be utilized as manure to grow beautiful roses and fresh vegetables. Dirty jobs are meaningful, so I respect them .
