(Excerpt from the text)
●What happened cannot be changed. But how you handle it is up to you. ● Opportunities don’t always come with a cute ribbon on them. An event that “if possible, I don’t want it to happen” turns into an opportunity…!
●By losing both legs, you can now choose “I am this”.
The countless options have been narrowed down, but there are still many options, Comfortable and just right.
Choose what you like, enjoy it how you like, so I’m very happy. ● It would be a shame if it ended with “I hate myself because I am not as ideal as I am”.
While striving to get closer to the ideal, he goes bright at his own pace, saying, “Well, that’s okay.”

About the author

While attending a vocational school, she appeared in a fashion show on NHK, and decided to break down the barrier between the able-bodied and the disabled through the power of entertainment, and started modeling.
Wanting people to know the real situation without being caught up in the misconception that people with disabilities are pitiable, he created a great response by answering all sorts of questions without NGs, such as the realities of bathing and toilets for wheelchair users, traveling, and living alone. In 2021, she will appear as a performer at the closing ceremony of the Tokyo Paralympic Games. In addition to walking in a wheelchair on the runway of the Milan Collection in 2022 and the Paris Collection in 2023, he has also appeared as a backup dancer in the arena tour of singer MISIA, and his activities are attracting attention from all over the world. “Even though you have a disability, it’s not that you’re optimistic, but that you’re naturally bright,” he admits to himself and others. As a woman who has surpassed “Wheelchair model Ashihara Umi”, she is gaining enthusiastic support from both men and women, from elementary school students to parents, with comments such as “Just looking at her gives me courage” and “I love her so I want to support her!”.
