She sang in public for the first time at a Tokyo karaoke bar, and immediately realized she wanted to continue performing throughout her life. Growing up with the city's karaoke bar traditions and hearing music ranging from Motown musicians to The Beatles at home also influenced her to pursue music. She started writing her own songs at age seven, which she would perform for her family. She moved to Hong Kong at age 10, where she had her formative years and lived until she was 18. After graduating from Hong Kong International School she moved to Los Angeles, California, and attended college at Musician's Institute.
