Maho YamamotoPeople's Choice Award
1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
I believed that there was a dwarf in my house. I called her “Konoka” and I played with her. My mother also said she heard footsteps of me and someone. I am sure she is a Yokai called “Zashiki-warashi” We believe Zashiki-warashi sometimes play pranks but she brings good luck to people who see her. As I grew up, I became invisible at some point.
2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
The talent I wish I had is singing. It is very attractive to be able to send a message in a song. And most of all, singing has the power to make many people smile, so I hope I can sing a song that moves someone’s heart. On the other hand, if I had a talent for singing, I might not have thought of using sign language with dance.
3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
This is Ms. Itsuko, who has taught me how to dance since I was little. She understands my interests and respects my thoughts. And she supports my challenge from the bottom of her heart at any time. "It is Maho’s good point to try without fear of anything" Thanks to her words, other people also start supporting me. I am very grateful to her for always supporting me.
4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
The best costume ever is a witch costume I wore with dance teammates when I was in elementary school. We wore black costumes arranged for each of us and put on makeup with black eyeshadow and black lipstick. Then, we performed a spooky and cool dance and received a lot of applause.
5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
I love dancing, so I will dance to any song. When I was a child, I used to dance to even nursery rhymes and classical music. Among them, the song makes me want to dance the most is “7-Rings” by Ariana Grande. Of course, it's wonderful music, but it's also the song that I choreographed as the leader of a dance team in the first time, so "7-Rings" makes me want to dance.
