I heard that you sang Part of Your World during Karaoke Night. How did you get interested in singing?
I really enjoy singing karaoke with my friends in Japan because it’s everywhere. Before coming to Australia, I sang karaoke several times a week since karaoke isn’t as common and cheap like it is in Japan, and I knew I was going to miss singing karaoke alot.
What’s your favourite song?
I love Disney songs from movies like Tangled, Frozen, Little Mermaid. I also like to sing Katy Perry songs during karaoke. But my favourite Disney songs are Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid and Let It Go from Frozen.
Do you miss Japan?
The food is Australia is alright, since they have the basic Japanese food like miso soup. But I miss Japanese food too, since everything back home is miso-flavoured. And they don’t have it here in Australia, but I’m loving Australia so much!
What other talents do you have other than singing?
I enjoy learning languages, so I’ve learnt Japanese, English, French and a bit of Arabic.
I think Arabic language and its poetry is so beautiful, and I love the written language
of Arabic. I also love travelling, although it’s not exactly a talent. I’ve already visited
places like USA and Taiwan, and I wanted to travel to the Southern hemisphere, so
now I’m here in Australia. After learning Arabic, I really want to travel to the Middle
East, especially Egypt!
I always wanted to be on such a page like the Humans of my university back in Japan,
but there are so many other people in my university who got interviewed instead. So I
was so happy that I’m going to be on Humans of IH. It’s like a dream come true!
