I didn't think I would be chosen as a Kawaii Ambassador, so I feel really moved! I'm grateful to all my family and friends who voted! I'll be preparing as best I can right up until FACo to make sure that I can show my best self to everyone! Let's meet up in March!

It is an honor to be chosen as a Kawaii Ambassador. This will be the first time I've been on such a big stage, so it's going to be a very valuable experience for me. I want to see all the models up-close on the runway and study what they do. I'm also looking forward to interacting with all the other Kawaii Ambassadors about the fashion and culture in their countries and regions.

I love Japan, so I am very happy to be chosen as a Kawaii Ambassador. I've been totally into Japan, including the food, fashion, manga, tourism, and movies, ever since I was a kid, but I've never been. So I really want to take the opportunity to try and pick-up some of the language, learn about Fukuoka and find-out more about Japanese culture.

This isn't just about appearing at FACo, I feel so fortunate to have the chance to learn about Japanese culture.
