On Thursday, November 29, 2012, SHUTO Ayumi (APS3, Japan) claimed the crown of Miss Universe Japan Oita at the inaugural contest held in Oita City. Our warmest congratulations to SHUTO Ayumi!
Looking towards the All-Japan contest, SHUTO Ayumi said: “I have never entered a contest like this before and don’t consider myself to be anything out of the ordinary. Winning this contest gives me a lot of confidence. As I look towards the national crown, I will do my best to ensure that all the hard work and tears of those who trained with me were not in vain. In the coming months, I am also confident that the determination and international understanding skills I developed at APU will help me to achieve my goal”.
With this win, Ms. SHUTO secured her spot at the final round of the Miss Universe Japan contest to be held on March 4 (Sun) 2013. We wish her all the best.
