Years competed:2018, 2019








私は20代半ばに日本の作家「本田健」に出会い、彼の「ハッピー・マネー・マインド」にとても感銘を受け、自分が他人のために何ができるか考え始めました。私はすぐに行動に移し、毎月のお給料の20%を寄付して、30代後半に退職するまでそれを続けました。 私はサルサを踊るのが大好きで、ラテンダンスの競技経験もあります。ビーチが大好きで、太陽の下でドリンクを飲むのも大好きです。旅行が好きで、大好きなアーティスト嵐のコンサートに行くのが大好きです。私は自分の人生が大好きです。














世界中の美しく知性溢れる女性達と出会うことができて、とても幸運でした。彼女達から多くを学びました。 大勢の観客の中、ビーチに作られたランウェイを歩いた事が印象的でした。とても楽しかったです。






私の全財産を寄付したことがあります。もちろん莫大ではありませんが、世界中で貧しい人々のために多額の寄付をしているたくさんの方々に敬意を表します。 彼らのように私も自分で出来る事をと思ってのことです。長い間の夢だったレストランのビジネスオーナーになったこと。在沖米海軍病院で約13年間、金融の専門家として米国・日本の両政府に貢献したこと。私は本当に仕事を楽しんでいました。
















ポッドキャストでページェントに関するすべてのレッスンを聞いて勉強しました。2回も(笑) 自分自身が克服する必要がある事のリストを作成し、それをひとつひとつこなしました。プロのウォーキングレッスンを受けました。


1.練習、2.練習、3.練習 そして、完璧なコーチを見つけること!屋良充佑紀さんという、最高に素晴らしいコーチに出会えたことは、とても幸運なことでした。彼女の指導は的確でわかりやすく、とても熱心で楽しかったです。彼女は世界一素晴らしいウォーキングインストラクターだと思います。
