SORT BY Relevancy
Instead of celebrating her crown, Ariana Miyamoto is already finding the need to defend it.
Japan's newest Miss Universe contestant broke barriers when she was recent chosen to represent her country. But because the 20-year-old is the daughter of a Japanese woman and a black man from America, some are questioning whether she really is Japanese enough to hold the title.
According to Japanese websites, comments on Twitter ranged from, "Is it okay to select a hafu to represent Japan?" to "Because this is Miss Universe Japan, don't you think hafu are a no-no." Hafu is a Japanese term used to refer to someone who is biracial.
In an interview with press, Miyamoto insisted that while she doesn't "look Japanese" on the outside, on the inside, there are many Japanese things about her.
In addition to being born and raised Nagasaki, the young adult also is a Japanese citizen who can speak the language fluently.
While some critics have been vocal about their hopes of having another contestant take her spot, others have shown their support for the newly crowned beauty queen.

Today's Show: Taking YOUR Brand to the TOP! Guest: Ariana Ayu-
Are you a celebrity in your industry? Do you want to be? Do you hate having to “sell” yourself and your services? How much would it mean to be recognized as the expert you are?
There's a simple solution that will let you stop “selling” and easily gain more of your ideal clients. Let’s face it, there are probably a ton of people out there who do what you do. I don’t care how much differently you do what you do, if potential customers don’t understand your value and connect with you on an emotional level, you won’t make sales. Without sales, you have no business, you can’t help the people you’re meant to help, and you’ll eventually end up back in that dreaded J.O.B.! Ariana Ayu’s Bodacious Branding system is a proprietary personal celebrity branding system that helps you authentically connect quicker and easier with your ideal clients so you can spend more time doing what you’re brilliant at and less time selling.
Bodacious Branding: Get your brand into your body so you can sell without saying a word.
