Tamaki is a Social Sciences major at Waseda University and Miss World Japan 2020 Runner-up. While she was born in Tokyo, Tamaki spent most of her childhood in the US, where she had planned to pursue medical school and become her definition of a “successful woman”. Just several weeks before graduating from her American high school, however, Tamaki realized that her ideal future-self was like a perfectly empty shell with no inner identity. With the desire to find her true identity, Tamaki changed her college plans and started living in Japan for the first time in 15 years. Through new experiences and culture shocks, Tamaki discovered unquestioned assumptions and subconscious stigmas that distorted her views of the world and of herself. She hopes to share her story on how she overcame her obsession over who she “ought to be” in the future by uncovering and accepting who she already “is” in the present.
