CHILDHOOD:
As a child Now loved being in front of people, and would always perform in front of her family. She always wanted to stand out, so would always try to make people laugh. She loved to sing and dance to the song [すいかの名産地] and Pretty Cure songs. [x]

She was also a fan of AKB48 and Momoiro Clover Z. When a new AKB song was released, she’s buy it, and learn all the words and dances. [x]

SCHOOL/EDUCATION:
She’s been leaning dance to 10 years, and has been having singing lessons since junior high school. She can also play the piano. [x]

She became the class chairperson since no one else volunteered and she wanted to do something to make herself stand out, by shouting, “I’ll do it!” This changed in junior high school, where she didn’t think about standing out so much. She was bad at maths and so would sit in the nurse’s office to avoid it. [x]

In high school, she was a part of the fencing club, as the teacher said it’s very similar to dancing, so she found herself curious. She eventually became the director of the club. Her feelings of wanting to stand out returned during this time. [x]

IDOL HISTORY:
Now was a founding member of the idol group SakuranbomBom, which began July 24, 2012. Being the oldest member in the group, at aged 11, she was the leader of the group. SakuranbomBom was formed in the same year as the London Olympics and they hoped to be big time idols come the Olmypics in Rio 2016. She had her own solo single in the group, titled NO!!NO!!! released July 18th, 2015. She remained in the group until they disbanded on April 30, 2016. The group’s work can be found in the form of live perofrmances and videos, available on YouTube.

After the groups disbanding, the 4 members came back together, from April to August of 2018, for some performances under the name NSKY@ぼんBom (the first letter of each member’s names). The reason for disbanding was “to make each member’s dreams come true” [x]

She originally wanted to apply for the WAgg auditions, but didn’t because she lacked the courage at that time. [x]
