September Model of the Month, Yuri!

How did you get started in this field?

I was scouted on the street in my hometown of Fukuoka. I still remember that day!

Who are some of your favorite icons that have influenced you?

Ai Tominaga, Kiko Arai, Kate Moss, Shanina Shaik, Naomi Campbell, I have a lot!

Also the people I meet on set. I love to hear their stories


Karaoke at my house when I'm alone (haha!). I don't have equipment, I just like to sing along to the songs =)

Career Highlights?

I was so excited when my Cover FX Ad was in Sephora. It was a dream come true to see my face in the store!

Also when Briana and I travelled to California for a beauty shoot. This booking made me really proud of myself because it was my first out of state work ever

Long Term Goals?

My long term goal is to start my own business and experience as many cultures as possible. I want to conquer the beauty world and hopefully see my face in Time Square one day!

Being a role model is something I really enjoy. I like to help others believe in themselves and show them that anything is possible if you're willing to work hard
