Dreams can come true!
That’s what we all like to think, and that’s what happened for Maiko Itai.
She was crowned Miss Universe Japan on Tuesday the 9th.
Until last DEcember she was a public servant at the Utsuki city hall in Oita prefecture.
She seems pretty smart being able to speak both English and Portugese which she had learned at Sophia University in Tokyo.
Now she will compete at the Miss Universe pageant in July.
