translation : Airi Suzuki "I was scared to death after °C-ute's disband" (GirlsWalker)

TOKYO GIRLS COLLECTION's official media "girlswalker" is having a web feature called "TGC model's BIRTHDAY" in which they introduces the background of TGC models. On April 12, 2021, they shared an article about Airi Suzuki, asking her many questions about herself and her background. It doesn't contain any new pictures, but it's interesting and I hope you'll enjoy it.


Q. Where were you born and where did you grow up ?
I was born in Gifu prefecture, but raised in Chiba.

Q. What kind of child were  you ?
I was a child who sang a lot from an early age. My father is a professional golfer, so when he went to watch a game, I would hold a microphone in the middle of the club and say, "Everyone, please enjoy Ai-chan's live !" before holding some kind of live performance. 
My mother said that when she was busy with my little brother, I often told her "You can just cook me rice with natto !". Did I understood that rice and natto were easy to do as a child ? (see "letter from mom") By the way, I still like natto so much that I eat it every day.

Q. Could you tell us about any unusual incidents or a fun episode from your chilhood ?
When we were living in Gifu, there was a time I switched on the fire alarm of the whole building. I don't know if that was because I was attracted by switches, but anyway I couldn't stop myself from pushing buttons as soon as I saw one. I took the small chair of the living room to climb up to switch the alarm. My mother told me that when she found me, I showed her a very large smile. (see "Airi Suzuki's 18 years old history").

Q. Please tell us about your family structure and some memories from childhood.
We're 4 - father, mother, my little brother and me. In the past, we used to travel to the Tohoku region or Sapporo. I love cold places, so it was a lot of fun. We haven't been able to go on a family trip in a while, so I'd like to go when the situation has calmed down.

Q1. What's your favourite song from your Hello! Project days ?

Gotô : The last single I've participated it, Morning Musume.'s "Do it! Now". I remember trying my best not to show my lonely feelings and instead show my cool self during the recording. 

Takahashi : Gotô-san's graduation, Morning Musume.'s "Do it! Now". It was the first time I saw a senpai I admired graduate, which makes it a very important song.

Suzuki : It's pretty hard to chose, but it must be the debut single of the group Aa!, "FIRST KISS". Thanks to this song, I could show Hello! Project fans how much I loved to sing.
