Mission Statement

My mission is to emulate aspects of Asian Pop Culture and create a bridge between East to West philosophies. In pursuit of my own definition of “the American Dream”, I aim on bringing bits and pieces of said culture to my audience, either local or far away whilst learning more about my personal ethnic background as a biracial woman living in what we consider as the “melting pot of the world”.

In conjunction, I also intend to revolutionize what it means to be an “idol”. Unfortunately, the reality for most celebrities, idols, and performers alike has hinged on them giving up their autonomy and individuality to placate narcissistic paradigms from society at large. I want to be a leading example of breaking out of that mold and re-establishing our own humanity through self-empowerment and inner healing. Evolving our perspective on how we approach performers, in turn, will create sustainability, accountability, and overall wellness for the collective as a whole; including said performers, fans, and companies alike. It’s important to look at this from a critical lens and break norms that hold performers back so they have the freedom to authentically express their personal truths. If we accept our vulnerability as human beings, that would be the key to removing the “idolatry” from idol culture so we can prioritize people over profits.

I have always been excited to perform and have done so at various events for almost a decade! Ideally, I’d like to work towards performing in a healthy professional atmosphere while improving my skills and experience. When it comes to any opportunities that you may offer, I am willing to discuss how I can help make your event more unique and enjoyable!


Ever since I was toddler, I had a fondness for singing and would create silly songs off the top of my head before I was able to speak actual sentences to other people. As my childhood progressed, I would then participate in local school and church choirs during my elementary days.

At age 14, I discovered Vocaloid music and learned about J-Pop. Ever since then, my passion for J-Pop blossomed and I learned how to sing and dance. With roots in the Odottemita (踊ってみた) community, I have been dancing as a member of “Jump Ship Dance” (formerly “CosStarDance”) since 2012.

In 2014, I started my idol career, becoming the co-captain of the J-Pop Idol Group “Rainbow Bubble” until September 2015, then I went on to found my own group, “NovaDrop”, which disbanded in 2017. After being a soloist for a while, although hesitant, in 2019 I participated in idol groups like “AmbiFlora” and “Vivacu”.  Some, unfortunately, didn’t turn out the way it was planned so I still continued my solo activities in the midst of working in and out of group settings.

During that time, I’ve been spreading Idol Culture throughout the world as the founder of the Overseas Idol Collection network and performing cross country at events like “Starlight Idol Festival”, “Texas Idol Festival” and “Kira Kira Pop”. I even made my international debut in Canada at “Québec Idol Festival”!

Once the COVID-19 Pandemic hit, that’s what marked the end of my journey as an Overseas Idol. In June 2020, I “graduated” from the Overseas Idol scene in pursuit of expanding outside of the J-Pop sphere and geared my focus on studying pop music from other cultures.

Throughout the duration of my career, I struggled finding what was right for me and in doing so, battled with loneliness amidst being around others. Learning how to be a part of a group was not a simple task for me but it was through continuous trial and error that I discovered a lot of things about myself. Had I taken the easy route, I wouldn’t have gained the knowledge I have today. Having the ability to overcome hardships and trying your best to be strong in the face of adversity is what I believe to be the beauty of an “eyedol”. I hope that by leading myself, it can inspire others to carve their own path as well!
