    Ariana Miyamoto is NOT Japanese Enough

    in Current Events

     


    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.

    in Business

    Listen as, through an interpreter, Clare Maxfield Interviews Hitomi Ohmori AICI CIM on her upcoming AICI global session Professional Presence - The New Successful Dressing for Women.


    Japanese session: Currently, according to the social trend to promote diversity, the government and enterprises virtually became positive to encourage women's social advancement and support their activities in society. For this, women's working environment is seeing ground-breaking change. Now working women's start-up of their own business, seeking employment, carrier change, promotion, are all creating new opportunities of consultation. Women being active in the front lines are becoming a new market of Image Industry. Business dress is not an adornment but definitely a powerful strategy. It is a vital tool to make yourself successful which you never find within those fashion magazines. Today, we are going to share the mechanism of strategic dressing and consulting, with touching upon not only successful examples but failure stories also. I'm sure it will give all of you a chance to obtain new formula of professional dressing which brings you an innovative value-driver and change.
