Why netizens are going gaga over this beautiful Japanese college junior

10 March 2015 / 1 year 7 months ago

You've seen many cute girls making waves online for various reason but this cutie's a little different.

Why you ask? Because Ayaka Yokota is simply a Japanese college junior who won a beauty contest at her school last year, reports RocketNews24 via AOL News Japan.

She’s been getting lots of praise online recently simply by posting things every college student does, which is apparently more than enough for her legions of fans.

Part of the reason for Yokota’s recent fame is because of the unwritten tradition of Japanese women who attend an all-girls college and win their school’s beauty pageant going on to become a news anchor after graduation.

Since Ayaka won the contest at her school, Otsuma Women’s University, everyone has high hopes for her to become the next pretty face on their local news station.

She’s been getting comments like: 

“She’s so cute!

“She has that ‘girl next door’ charm to her.

“She will definitely be an anchor in two years’ time.”

In the meantime though, she’s still just a college junior, and…well, she’s mostly posting things that typical college juniors do on her social media accounts.

Feel free to follow Ayaka on Instagram and Twitter.
