Fun Facts about Miki: She was four years old when she decided she wanted to be a ballerina, and chose her first studio because she liked the colorful stripes on the walls. She works for her family’s business, an orchid nursery, and often brings flowers to the studio for everyone to enjoy. She is a huge fan of sporty cars, particularly Lamborghini.
