MOA KIKUCHI Self Biography before Sakura Gakuin:
Born at July 4th, 1999, my mom said I was small, and the sunset was so beautiful when I was born. For your information,
the little Moa in home videos often talks about when I was still in my mom's womb. I still vaguely remember how my mom's womb was like! Isn’t it amazing?
2 to 3 years old: Started to work for magazines.
1st grade: I saw “Kirarin Revolution” on “Chao” Magazine and decided to become an idol, the first CD I bought with my
allowance is “Chance!” of Kirarin Revolution!
2 to 3 grade: Was the class representative! Being put forward for it.

had to take lessons in Osaka and Tokyo but kept going, it was fun!

the next physical education class, I’m confident in it. Oh, also won a prize on a collage contest!
- 4th grade: My grades were at the best around the time! I liked all subjects, got straight double circles (A) except for 2 single circles (B), and met Yui this year.
- 5th grade: Joined Sakura Gakuin lessons, by the way Rau-chan looked after me first, I was with Nene-don (Sugisaki Nene) and Marina-chan at the Chao Girl audition so we already knew each other.
