Born on 12th May, 1994, Ariana Miyamoto’s glorious win on March 12, 2015 for being crowned as the Miss Universe Japan 2015 definitely brought fame along with some really derogatory criticisms. Ariana herself belonged to one mixed race, being Afro-Asian. This had soon created flutters in the life of this newly crowned Miss Universe Japan 2015. Ariana was soon charged with racial abuse, which she endured patiently.
Along with hearty congratulations, many critics also went on criticizing saying that the title of Miss Universe Japan should have been given to one “Pure Japanese” instead of doing so with a “Haafu” since Ariana was actually not that Japanese enough.
While some continued with the abuses, Ariana soon became the sparkling celebrity since she was now responsible for changing the entire scene of Japanese races. Soon after the victory, the social media absolutely proliferated with Miyamoto’s glorious win.
Her story since her school days till date, when she had to endure so many backlashes became so compelling and inspiring that international channels like The Washington Post, BBC and CNN featured here. Not just that, even the official page of Miss Universe in Facebook has paid a small tribute to this young Nagasaki lady.

It thus now becomes primarily important for Ariana Miyamoto that she must not now only focus on her compelling story. Instead, she should focus on the upcoming grand event on Miss Universe since it is that that would matter to her the most. She must, therefore focus on her body structure for ensuring that she can get a smooth walk for the swimsuit competition, thereby further ensuring that her catwalk can be at par with the expected standards of Miss Universe.
Along with the physical fitness, she must also focus on her interview skills as well. Thus, she should shift her emphasis from just being informed about the Japanese positive affairs to wider global issues, since now she would now be representing her country being an ambassador. Her team is also expected to focus on her styling and make-up.
Since the day Ines Ligron, the popular Japanese director had quit the organization, Japan has completely lost the direction with respect to this grand beauty pageant, thus resulting in the country to reduce its sash weight. This is what Ariana Miyamoto must understand.
Each of the contestants has a different story, wherein the racial discrimination of the present Miss Universe Japan 2015 can be quite ordinary. In case Ariana fails to make it, it would not just be her and Japan’s failure, but would be a vindication to all her supporters, who stuck with her, thick and thin. Whereas, in case
In case Ariana fails to make it, it would not just be her and Japan’s failure, but would be a vindication to all her supporters, who stuck with her, thick and thin. Whereas, in case Ariana Miyamoto is able to win the grand Miss Universe, she would be able to spend almost a year with grand elegance at The Trump Towers of New York along with enhancing the issues, that are extremely close to her heart.
