ABOUT SARA WAKA:
Thanks to my parents – both Japanese Opera singers who moved to Italy for love – I consider myself Milanese. I live between Milan, Paris, and Tokyo where I work as a creative consultant and I was brand ambassador for international companies like Christian Louboutin, Piaget, Hogan, Nintendo Italia, Asahi Super Dry, and more.
After earning a Bachelor degree in Art, Valorisation and Market, I completed my Masters in Cultural Mediation. Following which, I held positions across a multitude of creative sectors: as a contributor for L’Officiel Italia and Elle Japan, a Japanese guide at the Prada Fondation, and cultural mediator for EXPO Milan.
My extroverted nature, creative outlook, and interest in different cultures led me to create Wakapedia in 2013. What started as a passion for showcasing the unique people I had the pleasure of meeting, over time, blossomed into an international creative organization.
