INTERVIEW

Where are you from?
Arika Sato: I am originally from Torrance, California and lived there until I was 18. After that I went to UCSD in San Diego and USC for Graduate School, where I lived in West Hollywood, which I LOVED! Now I live in Beverly Hills - it’s a little bit more relaxed but gorgeous!

What would you say are your strengths as a model?
Arika Sato: I have no idea! Maybe my wardrobe because I love fashion and styling! I also love doing my makeup. People have asked me for fashion and beauty advice, so that’s what inspired me to make my “Model Tips” YouTube video series. I'm not a professional but with the tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years, I enjoy teaching the girls that are willing to learn!

Describe yourself in three words...
Arika Sato: Nerdy, happy and glamorous! (lol) I am a HUGE nerd because I love computers, games and toys. I am so happy and appreciative about every moment in life, and I live for beauty and fashion.

What are some of your modeling highlights so far?
Arika Sato: I have been on covers of some well known magazines and hosted for Spike TV and Maxim’s Gear Girl. I loved being on MTV and also being a part of the Monster Energy calendar. I have also had opportunities to be in music videos and TV shows on FX, HBO, E! and more. I am so grateful for these opportunities. I am also appreciative of the wonderful people I have met on these shoots.

Does your personality match your Zodiac sign?
Arika Sato: A Gemini can get along with anyone. They find ways to adapt to their environment and I can really do that –  whether it's a nightclub or the school library! Geminis are also great multi-taskers – I was modeling/acting and producing YouTube videos while earning my Master's Degree at USC... Not bad right?

What is the strangest photo shoot you’ve done?
Arika Sato: I don’t know about photo shoots, but I do strange video shoots all the time! I have some pretty creative videos on my YouTube Channel, including a horror movie called “Arika’s Beautiful Nightmare” where I dream I am in a horror movie with tons of famous monsters - it was fun to shoot and kinda scary! I also have a Grand Theft Auto-type video where I am this crazy lady who steals things! A lot of videos on my channel are strange but they are a ton of fun.

What is your favorite food?
Arika Sato: Sushi! I am Japanese so I eat all of the exotic Sushi.

What is your dream car?
Arika Sato: An Aston Martin convertible because they are fast and sexy.

What are some of your turn-ons?
Arika Sato: Smart guys and educated guys - I guess nerds! (haha) Nerdy is hot.

How do you feel about pick-up lines?
Arika Sato: If a pick-up line works, then that's amazing. I definitely don’t think it’s a deal-breaker, because if you are attracted to each other you are going to talk anyways!

On a scale of 1 to 10, how wild are you in the bedroom?
Arika Sato: I think I'm shy! I think I can be a one but also a 10. It depends how amazing my significant other is!

What do you wear to bed?
Arika Sato: A big, fluffy, fuzzy onesie... Not! A tank top and booty shorts. I like to feel my soft sheets...

Have you posed in the nude?
Arika Sato: Never! Only on my Phone, but those get deleted. ;)

Who are your heroes in real-life?
Arika Sato: My parents. They have saved me from so many situations when I was stuck or down, so they are definitely my Batman and Catwoman!

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
Arika Sato: To have a clone. Sometimes I want to be at two places at once, so to have a clone would be spectacular!

Do you have any shout outs?
Arika Sato: My family - my Mom, Dad, Grandma and my big bro! A big thanks to all my amazing fans, you guys are my friends and I thank you for supporting me from the beginning. Also a huge shout out to my best friend Erika, who has been with me since day one and my biggest inspiration! And last but not least, a big hug to the other amazing models out there! Love you all! #pasmag
