Full name: Chieko Arai Title/Year: Mrs East Asia Worldwide 2019 Special Queen Ambassador Award 2019 Mrs. Noble Queen 2019 Age: 53 Zodiac sign: Pisces Hobbies: Marathon running Platform: Volunteer at Koresha Ashiura Masters (Old people of Ashiura Masters, a facility for older citizens) Years competed: 1 Countries visited: Singapore Likes: Working together with people who have a common purpose. Dislikes: Jealousy and any emotion that stops us from approaching our tasks in life in a happy way. Status: Married World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about yourself. I come from a city called Hitachi near Tokyo in Japan. Hitachi is well known for the manufacture of electrical appliances. I am a mother of two children, a son 24, and a daughter 22. I teach walking and makeup to pageant contestants in Hitachi. I run in my local marathon every year. I always finish in the top 5 and my best finish was second. World Class Beauty Queens: What does women Empowerment means to you? Women’s empowerment is about choice. There was a time when women did not have a lot of choices. For example, not so long ago a woman could be a nurse but not enter the police force. Now women have more freedom of choice. Recently in Japan I can see women as train drivers, truck drivers, taxi drivers, police constables and more all professions that were closed to women only 10 years ago. This choice is not restricted to professions. There are many areas of life where we should be allowed to make our own choices. When we can make our choice freely this is empowerment. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your pageant history. I have been teaching walking and makeup to pageant contestants in Hitachi for 5 years. I entered my first pageant in 2016, The Mrs. Japan Grand Prix, and in 2018, I entered the Mrs. Tourism Japan Contest. I was runner up in the Mrs. Japan Grand Prix. This year I entered the Mrs. World Wide event in Singapore and won the Special Queen Ambassador Award and the Mrs. Noble Beauty Award. World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do your first pageant? I believe that even if women are married and have had children, they still desire to be beautiful. I have children and as a mother I felt I lost that ability to shine as a woman. These contests gave me an opportunity to shine again. World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? Singapore Mrs. World Wide was my first attempt to take on the challenge of a non-Japanese tournament. For me the challenge of language and different cultures made this a very exciting and interesting challenge. The opportunity to compete with speeches and Q&A in English and the opportunity to make international friends made the Singapore event very special to me. World Class Beauty Queens: What are you being judged on during the competition? Categories include: Walking, Speech, Q&A, Deportment generally (posture, attitude, behavior), Platform (social contribution) World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your experience during the competition. I felt very nervous about my English and am not sure I did a great job in the speaking section. But I learned enough English to make many international friends and have a great time. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. I volunteer and run activities to raise money for Koresha Ashiura Masters (Old people of Ashiura Masters, a facility for older citizens). My activities in the pageants provide a great opportunity to give exposure to my platform. For example, when I return to Hitachi local newspapers and other media take an interest in my activities abroad and this enables me to also act on behalf of my volunteer activities. World Class Beauty Queens: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls? Just being at the event with so many fantastic contestants from all over the world makes me feel like I have already won. I am proud as the representative of Japan to participate and I enjoy meeting everyone. For the judges to choose one person as a winner seems very difficult. I would not want to be a judge. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. I was surprised and very happy. I kept thinking how the title will give me a great opportunity to work on behalf of my social volunteer activities. World Class Beauty Queens: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? I believe this is a responsibility. I think it is incumbent on beauty queens to put their title to work in the service of their platform (activities to contribute to society). World Class Beauty Queens: How did competing in pageants help your life? I gained confidence, was forced to work harder on my English, and in general the experience helped to reinvigorate my efforts in relation to social contributions at Koresha Ashiura Masters. So, the experience preparing and entering pageants gave a renewed focus and added energy and purpose to the things I had already set out for myself. World Class Beauty Queens: How did pageants helped your self-esteem and body image? I was able to learn important life skills through the pageant such as making speeches, answering questions well and general deportment. This has helped to strengthen me as a person and build my self-confidence. World Class Beauty Queens: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? I feel that I have a sense of responsibility to be a role model for others. World Class Beauty Queens: What is your on-stage strategy to win the judges over? I think it is importance to present an overall balance across all the skills the judges look at World Class Beauty Queens: How did you prepare for your competition? My main preparation was mentally and physically and to ensure that I was healthy as mother on behalf of my country. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? Always focus on the basics, smiling, posture, keeping the line of ones feet straight. But it even more important to be confident and express that in your walk. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? My main tip is to choose a dress that displays your body lines well. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for winning interview? I think it is important to show thanks to everyone for their support and recognize that we are part of a team. And I think non-native speakers of English should work to brush up their English skills. World Class Beauty Queens: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it? I think I could have analyzed myself better to ensure that I focus on key points that express my strengths better. World Class Beauty Queens: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest? I think the biggest mistakes that contestants make is to misunderstand the meaning of beauty. World Class Beauty Queens: Any modeling or acting experience? I have performed in many fashion shows and on many runways in Japan. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your plans for 2020 as a Queen? I want to create opportunities for women and help them to love and accept themselves. We hold events and parties in Japan to teach and show off total beauty, such as walking and smiling. World Class Beauty Queens: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? I want to make use of my experience to increase the opportunities for women to express their beauty.
