So, how did you get into pageantry? What made you want to compete?

In life there is always mystery that bound to happen. I always thought it was great being a member of the Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers from elementary school. About fifteen years ago, I passed the exam and the nation to which I would be transferred was scheduled. However, a number of reasons forced me to step down. I have been working as a public health nurse for about 15years.With some regrets, I had denied a dream since elementary school that was about to come true. A few years ago, I considered giving it another shot.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t step forward because of COVID-19 and being unable to take a two-year leave of absence from work.

Meanwhile, my first challenge in the pageant was my simple admiration for beautiful dresses.

I have, however, come to understand that being a representative of a beauty pageant leads to societal and international contributions, and I have frequently asked myself, “What can I contribute?”

As a MS. Summit International, I promise to have a positive influence on others by cooperating with other delegates and promoting world peace and health.

What does beauty mean to you? It’s more than just looks, right?

Beauty is more than just appearance, but also about living beautifully with good character, positive attitude in life that is real beauty.

For me, beauty is not about comparing myself to someone else, but rather a battle with myself to be the best version of myself. What make us different make us beautiful. And that is the beauty of the world diversity.

What makes you special? What sets you apart from the other contestants?

What make me special is my determination in life. I have been working as a public health for about 15years. I have researched incurable illnesses and natural disasters as part of my job, and I was proudly chosen to get an excellence award.

I have been recognized for my work and have been recommended to support the elderly.

I have visited 34 countries and this is my third time visiting Cebu, Philippines.

I have had a variety of experiences, supporting at international exchange children’s camp, working as a volunteer at an aquarium to educate people about living things and including performing in a musical.

I have performed in front of about 2,000 people in the musical twice with 200 members.

From these experiences, I have gained knowledge of the medical profession, understanding of diversity and different cultures and a cooperative mindset. I promise to create the peaceful world by making use of these experiences.

If you win, how would you use your title to help others?

As a Ms. Summit International, I used my crown to be a symbol positive influence on others by cooperating with other delegates and promoting world peace and quality health.

I promise to collaborating with other delegates from other countries to promote the Summit International and enhance women’s health and empowerment. I believe that by being healthy, we can make our dreams come true, and that happiness will spread to everyone, leading to world peace.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve learned from being in pageants?

The coolest thing I have learned that there is beauty in diversity, being in pageants is that anyone can change and develop no matter who they are.

Before entering the pageant, I lacked self-confidence and just kept worrying about what other people thought of me. As a result, I ignored my own desires and constantly looked down on myself, feeling jealous of others.

I was underestimated myself and couldn’t have a courage to step forward. I was stuck in the past and lived a life of regret.

However, after deciding to take part in the pageant, I address both my strengths and weaknesses.

I love sweets and hate exercise, so my stomach is bloated. I lost 4 kg (9lb) by managing my diet and exercising to be beautiful. I did not like being in front of people either, so I avoided it as much as possible. However, now I have made many public appearances. I have also tried to express my opinions. What can I contribute to society? What kind of woman is deserved to be Queen?

More than that, confront not only my physical appearance but also my inner self, I was able to develop physically, mentally, and socially. As a MS. Summit International, I would like to give courage to someone and encourage more women to shine.

How do you deal with people who might say mean things?

I will just smile, because humility and kindness is the essence of humanity.

Tell us about a time something amazing happened during a pageant!

My feet are small, 21 cm (8.3 inches), and I cannot find any shoes that fit.

The heels I had finally found and ordered turned out to be lost in transportation and would not get here in time for the competition. When other competitors learned of this, they attempted to assist me in finding new ones. I came to realize that beauty pageants are not just about external beauty; they’re also about inner beauty and supporting one another among competitors.


What kind of person do you think does well in pageants?

I believe that every candidate in Ms. Summit has potential to win. However, I believe that to compete in a pageant, she must be responsible in her actions and conscious of the fact that she is the queen representing her country and must showcase positive attitudes that will serve as a role model for others.

Being in a pageant means a lot of people are watching. How do you stay yourself through it all?

Since I was born with a low birth weight of 1960g(weighting4.3pounds) and was smaller than others, I was too nervous to even speak in front of others. However, to gain confidence, I’ve tried performing in a musical and trying out baton twirling as a way to appear in front of people.

Now, on the world stage of the Summit International, I am taking on the challenge of inspiring others to be brave and leading to world peace.

Right now, I am trying to be myself and am grateful that there is someone out there who sees me regardless of how they see me.

What do you dream of doing in the future, pageant world or not?

Having a kind and compassionate heart I love animals and have former rescue dog at my parent’s house. I hope to engage in animal protection initiatives in the future.
