Get to know Rio Miyazaki
Since I was six years old I actively took part in cheerleading and worked my way up to becoming a cheerleader for a professional baseball team. I am studying early childhood education at university with the goal of becoming a teacher and making a difference in children’s lives. I'm the type of person who doesn't give up until I achieve my goals.
• I'm most proud of my cheerleading accomplishments in my life.
• If I could have any super power it would be to teleport around the world and enjoy all the interesting cultures.
• I'm inspired by Anne Sullivan.
• If I had to describe myself in one word it would be dedicated.
• I'm happiest when I'm cheerleading and making others smile through positive energy.
• I can't live without cheerleading.
