She is head over heels in love with requests that demands more time and energy such as childcare.
You could call Naho amphibious, but even then she would say amphibians do not spend as much time in the water as she has the past 22 years. She carefully crafted her routine of swim practice from morning until night, every day of the week. She learned what it means to have a dream, and the joy in teaching others. So for whomever may need guidance about their children’s extracurricular athletics, she cannot wait to help!
Yuka spent her adolescence in Beijing, China. Ever since, she has been fascinated by the joy of experiencing different cultures. She used to work for a European airline as a flight attendant, flying back and forth between Europe and Japan. Her favorite destinations, though, are Bali and Bangkok. She loves food, and her nickname is "captain food" because she does so much research on restaurants while traveling. If you are planning a trip abroad, she would love to help you!
Midori has worked as a flight attendant for both Japanese and international airlines. Now she still really enjoys traveling as part of her personal life, and she has visited over 60 countries.
