Megumi came to Vancouver from Japan by herself a couple of years ago to learn English and is currently taking hotel management at school. She loves to travel and learn about different cultures and languages. One day she hopes to do a backpacking trip to Southeastern Asian countries one day!
Vancity Buzz: When and why did you get into modeling?
Megumi: I started modeling 7 months ago and I love it:) I know the girl who is a model and I asked her how I should get into this industry and here I am! I feel happy when I get great photos and it makes me want to do more! Fortunately, I’ve worked with a lot of talented photographers and am excited to meet more in the future.
VcB: On your days off you like to?
Megumi: I go to the gym, watch action and scary movies, do my nails and eat out! I love yam fries ;P
VcB: What are you future plans with respect to modeling or in general?
Megumi: I’m still new to this industry so I want to learn as much as I can and try many things and build a modeling career. I’m also interested in TV / Film industry so hope I get an opportunity to work in that field one day.
VcB: Being somewhat new to Vancouver, what’s your favourite thing about it?
Megumi: I love Vancouver!!! It’s a very relaxing city, the people are friendly and you are surrounded by nature. I’m from outside Tokyo where it’s very busy, so it’s different from here…That’s awesome I can see the ocean and mountain at the same time from the window in my place
