Biography[edit]

Sasaki was born on May 28, 2001 in Kesennuma, Miyagi to a Japanese father and Filipino mother.[3] On March 11, 2011, the city of Kesennuma was hit by the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, forcing Sasaki and her family to evacuate; this experience prompted her to join SCK GIRLS, a benefit idol group formed of girls whose lives were affected by the disaster.[1] She and her family resided in Tokyo as of April 2013.[4]

On October 4, 2014, Sasaki was chosen as one of the members of Angerme's 3rd generation, alongside fellow Kenshūsei Mizuki Murota and Maho Aikawa.[5]
