Meet Azusa Sakamoto of Azusa Barbie in West Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Azusa Sakamoto.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’m a huge Barbie Lover for 22years since when I was 15years old. I have 280 Barbie dolls which is not a lot for collectors but have hundreds of thousands of Barbie items including 150 Barbie T-shirts and more… I’m not just buying them, but I also do much DIY stuff to customize my whole studio room into real Barbie dream place. In my YouTube channel, I share my real Barbie world!!!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I was born and raised in Japan, and I always wanted to move to the US. To get this point where I am right now, I had to go through so much stuff! Literally!! Like as much as I could never write down everything here. But I always enjoyed those tough challenges because I knew those “challenges” were going to be “experiences” once I get over.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Azusa Barbie – what should we know?
I have a YouTube channel. All my videos are related to Barbie somehow. I show my collection, do Barbie inspired pink food cooking videos, tutorials for Barbie DIY, haul for Barbie outfits for myself, and more and more…

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Being optimistic, happy, passionate and independent!
