What's it like to be titled The Queen of the Universe? Gorgeous Sayo Harris may soon find out. She's the reigning Ms. Japan and she's poised to compete for The Queen of the Universe Pageant USA 2013.
Sayo has been in the States for three short years and in that time she has been featured in several magazines, TV shows and now a seasoned model.
Her martial arts skills landed her a starring role, as an assassin in the upcoming thriller The Last Samurai. She is using her celebrity to inspire underprivileged youth in the Japanese community. She also can be seen starring alongside Michael Madsen in the Horror Film, Forest of the Living Dead. She is fluent in Japanese and English, a karate expert and a huge animal advocate.
The government of Japan has bestowed one of that nation's highest honors on a Japanese-American, a former U.S. Soldier and World War II veteran, for his work furthering relationships between the Japanese and Americans. (army.mil )
