Hi everyone, I’m Kiko. I’m from Japan but currently living in France. In life, my passion belongs to helping others live a happier and healthier life, and I want to do so through heart-centered health coaching, by sharing my modeling/ eating disorder story, and by introducing ethical lifestyle that’s good for the environment, animals, our overall health.
I became a model from being scouted on the street of Tokyo at the age of 13. However,I did not work until 16 because I needed an education first. When I turned 17, I studied abroad in Canada and that's when and where I first got involved in the international modeling world. As a result of my work as a model, I began to develop a severe eating disorder and other mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. You can check my whole story with photos on Youtube.
Today, I am at peace. I am happy and healthy again and I feel truly grateful for what I do have in life, and I am kind to my body. Most importantly, I love myself for who I am.
As a Role Model, I want to be looked into rather than being looked at, and I want to tell as many people as I can that “They are so worthy”. Because when you look around, there’s no one like you. You are so unique and so beautiful in your own way. I want you to feel free, no pressure from others.
