She started joining pageants when she was 19 years old. Yuki shared that ever since she was a little girl, she had always dreamt of joining beauty pageants, especially the ones she watched on TV. Her personal experience of undergoing surgery to remove an ovarian cyst in 2019 made her realize that she can use her pageant experiences to raise awareness about women’s reproductive health.

She also shared that prioritizing family is an important Filipino trait her mother taught her. In Japan everyone lives alone, and on her days off she makes it a point to visit her parents and spend time with them.
