BIOGRAPHY

Nationality: Japanese

Dream Occupation: A cheerleading director in Japan to introduce and familiarize the NFL cheerleading style and skills.

Educational Background: Graduated from Otsuma woman’s university in Japan with a bachelor of science degree in nutrition. I am currently studying the English language.

Biggest thrill? Traveling. I traveled to LA, NYC, San Diego, Scottsdale, The Grand Canyon, Sedona, Denver, Chicago and Oklahoma City last year. I love all the cities because they gave me new discoveries! I plan on visiting New Orleans, Las Vegas, Houston, and Atlanta this year.

One thing most people would be surprised to learn about you: I’m from Japan and I came to the US for cheering for the 49ers! I had never been to the US and didn’t speak any English before making the squad. Now I can speak English!

Why did you decide to audition for Gold Rush?

I was a cheerleader in Japan. Japanese cheerleaders admire NFL cheerleaders. So, being a Gold Rush was my dream when I was little. And I strongly believe the 49ers is the most traditional and international team in the NFL!

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why? I would make a door to take me anywhere. If I could make that door, It would be easier to get to Japan and any country.

What is your favorite memory from being on Gold Rush? The 30th Gold Rush reunion. I met many Alumni including my roommate and my best friend who used to be Gold Rush. I am the 6th Japanese Gold Rush. I feel there is a lot of history and memories in Gold Rush. I was so happy to be a part of it.
