Who was your childhood hero?
My childhood hero was my uncle, who’s a vet. As a kid, I wanted to be a vet just like him!
Playing cards or video games?
Sometimes, I play cards with my friends at parties. I love playing video games also with my friends.
What do you have for lunch on Christmas day?
On Christmas Day, we usually have mushroom soup, fish with potatoes and salad.
Doing yoga or bungee jumping?
I’ve never done yoga nor bungee jumping, but I’d love to try bungee jumping!
What kind of candy do you like to eat on Halloween night?
In my homeland Halloween is not a big thing, but I love to eat milk chocolate bars, like Twix and Mars.
Who was your teenage celebrity crush?
Definitely, Hannah Montana. I was really into her, but I never told my friends about it (Laughs, E.D).
What do you wear on a plane?
Usually, something comfy like a hoodie and a pair of sweatpants.

How did you start your career in the fashion industry?
My mum went to see a couple of agencies, and they asked to meet me.
What do you wear to a party with friends?
Mostly, a shirt with a sweater on top and a pair of jeans.
How do you take care of your skin?
I wash it every morning and evening with a cleansing foam, and then I apply a face cream.
What’s your lucky number? Are you superstitious?
I’d say that my lucky number is seven, but I’m not superstitious.
How do you style your hair in the morning?
My hair lives its own life, so in the morning I just wash and brush it. That’s all!
What advice would you give to your 13-year-old self?
Be yourself!
If you were an exotic animal, which exotic animal would you be and why?
I’d love to be a parrot, because I could fly away with total freedom.

What advice would you give to all those who’re being bullied?
Stand up for yourself, and don’t listen to bullies!
If you had the chance to travel in time, where would you go and why?
I’d go back a year and fix my relationship with a girl.
What do you miss the most about last summer?
Partying with my friends and just spending time with them.
What’s your favourite country?
Japan, I think.
Do you have a family heirloom?
I don’t know, honestly. My family has a business, so I guess that’s my heirloom.
What’s your favorite song?
I don’t have a favourite one! I like lots of songs, and it’s hard to pick just one.
