Miss Universe Japan 2020 Aisha Harumi Tochigi comes from such a diverse background. Her father was originally from Togo. Her mother is Japanese. And she grew up in both Ghana and Japan.
Discrimination is nothing new to Aisha. She is considered a mixed minority in Japan. But having experienced the hard life in Africa, she took everything in with strength and determination. Having contracted malaria as a child, she went on to become an activist for its eradication as well as campaigning for Women’s Rights and orphanages.
Her platform as an Asian-Black woman is to spread awareness about discrimination and race/gender equality. She may very well be one of the best persons to push for this cause in the 69th Miss Universe.
