Moving to Japan

Venus moved from Switzerland to Spain in 2008. She then lived in Japan for a few years, which completely changed her life. She loved the Japanese culture so much that she eventually learned the Japanese language, culinary skills, and origami. She created her YouTube channel in May 2010 and posted her dance video.

After her first video, the next couple of videos that she posted were in Japanese. Venus later posted a tutorial on learning Japanese. As she had also learned various art forms of Japan, she posted tutorial videos on each of these.

Facing Criticisms

Her mother further added that Venus, like any other girl, happens to love dolls and ribbons.
